MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding the continued chaos and mismanagement at the Department of Human Services:

“Following weeks of the DHS in disarray with resignations, re-hirings, and unanswered questions, we are now made aware that DHS has made an incredible $25.3 million in overpayments to the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and the White Earth Nation for Medicaid reimbursements. From Governor Mark Dayton’s Administration to Governor Tim Walz’s, it is clear fraud, mismanagement, and lack of accountability or oversight are deep-rooted in Minnesota’s Democrat-run administrations. Transparency has been lacking ever since Walz and Flanagan took office, but when millions of taxpayer dollars are being misspent, it is time to answer to the Minnesota people.”
