Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is replacing the long-time watchdog of Illinois’ troubled child welfare system.
Denise Kane has been the inspector general of the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for 24 years.
But Rauner quietly announced last week that he’s replacing her at the end of the month.
Ben Wolf is with the ACLU - which has monitored DCFS under a court order for decade.
“I never doubted for a moment that her heart was focused on the best interest of the children and not on anything else,” he said.
