The Whistle-blower Suit Against Human Services

I got so busy late last week, I forgot to post the whistle-blower lawsuit filed by the former Human Services Department  lawyer who claims she was fired because she had complained about the agency’s handling of a controversial audit of government-funded mental health care.

Elizabeth Jeffreys says she reported her concerns to the state Attorney General in Fenruary -- months before the public heard anything about the audit that reportedly found credible evidence of massive fraud among 15 New Mexico behavioral health providers.

My story on the suit is HERE. Below is Jeffreys' complaint.
