Was AZ Governor Katie Hobbs involved in a “pay-to-play” scheme? A new investigation launched by the state’s AG promises to reveal the truth.

From Fox News. Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs is being investigated for an alleged “pay-for-play” scheme after a report revealed a group home business that looks after vulnerable children was approved for a rate hike after it donated to her inauguration and the Arizona Democratic Party.

Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, a Democrat, said her office has launched a probe into the matter after receiving a request from state Sen. T.J. Shope, a Republican who is also the Arizona Senate president pro tempore.

The request came after a report in The Arizona Republic showed Sunshine Residential Homes, the operator of group homes for foster kids, was approved for a nearly 60% increase in taxpayer funds via the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) after previously being denied an increase. …

Sunshine Residential Homes sought a 20% rate increase in December 2022, to $179 per day, but DCS refused on Feb. 6, 2023, according to records provided by the department cited by The Arizona Republic.

Then, on Feb. 9, 2023, a $100,000 check from Sunshine was credited to Hobbs’ inaugural campaign. And in May 2023, it secured a rate increase, netting Sunshine Residential $234 per day for standard group home services. It is far higher than the average $169 for other group homes. …

The increase means Sunshine is receiving the most out of dozens of home providers operating in the state, The Arizona Republic reported, citing DCS and state contract records it reviewed.

The publication also reported that no other group home provider has been approved for a rate increase during Hobbs’ tenure. …

Nick Klingerman, chief counsel of the criminal division in Mayes’ office, said they are obligated to investigate the matter after being notified.

“The Criminal Division of the Attorney General’s Office is statutorily authorized to investigate the allegations and offenses outlined in your letter. To that end, the Attorney General’s Office will be opening an investigation,” he wrote. …
