Agency Accused Of Inappropriate Social Media

KSAL StaffApril 14, 2015

A state agency is catching heat for social media comments that some say were too partisan.

A Friday post on the Facebook page of the Kansas Department for Children and Families accused the left of “mocking the State of Kansas” and said it has “stood in the way of progress.” The post defended restrictions approved by the Legislature in April on how welfare recipients can spend their money.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is expected to sign the restrictions, which have been criticized by pundits and comedians as unnecessary and demeaning for poor people.

DCF spokeswoman Theresa Freed said the post was an appropriate response pointing out facts to “liberal media organizations and activists.” She noted thousands of welfare recipients have found jobs under the program.
