Not only does the State of Kansas sanction and pay for a judge to preside over a case of removal of a child to be placed in foster care, but that same judge can actually place the child in his own home, and receive a foster care payment for it!
But, have no fear, most judges are not so bold in hustling money from the child welfare cases they oversee.
Most judges sit on non-profit boards of the child placing agencies which petition for removal of children to be placed in foster care.
Some judges even solicit campaign contributions from the same agencies which petition to have a child removed and placed in foster care.
Even some politically career orientated judges will legislate and lobby from the bench, without any disclosure of conflicts of interests or recusal.
So much for civil rights because it happens in every state.
Happy Compassionate Human Trafficking Month (formally known as Child Abuse Propaganda Month).
