Sunday Inspiration: Lana Reed

Ms. Reed, a onetime welfare case worker in Kansas, has turned whistleblower.

The Kansas City Star notes her comments at a recent public hearing, at the State Capitol, about an AZ-style immigration bill: "Lana Reed, who worked as a bilingual specialist for the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services in Overland Park from 2008 to 2010, urged lawmakers to adopt the bill targeting illegal immigration. She described a system overrun by illegal immigrants who used false Social Security numbers and other fraudulent documents to game the system."

Ms. Reed also revealed that "state policies favor illegal immigrants over legal residents in determining who gets food assistance."

This was no boring hearing given that admission.
