Sometimes you just have to rub a little harder....
There was some speculation about the sudden departure of both DSHS head Robin Arnold-Williams and CPS comrade Cheryl Stephanie at year's end. Turns out, it was really all timing around a report outing CPS program failures that the departures were all about.
With a scathing report on the failings of the department about to be released by the Office of the DSHS Ombudsman....here was the plan:
*Wait until after the election for the release of the document,
* Move Williams and Stephanie out of the picture before the study is released,
* Then hire replacements so there is no one who was immediately responsible for the findings to be around to answer questions,
* Issue the report around the holidays when half the press would be looking for new jobs, and the others vacationing or writing "human interest" stories.
* Have former press guru, Thomas Shapley, ready to deflect any criticism and downplay the study.
It worked...no press on the awful revelations!
