LeAnn Batiz, the latest employee in a string of employees to go public with revelations of Annette Bosworth's deceptive, manipulative, and irresponsible treatment of her employees, takes her story to the airwaves.
LeAnn Batiz is not liberal plotter or tool of "entrenched powers" conspiring against Bosworth. She was one of the earliest supporters of Bosworth's candidacy. Ben Dunsmoor brilliantly opens his report with video showing Batiz at Bosworth's July 16 campaign announcement. And then...
LeAnn Batiz used to support Bosworth's run for U.S. Senate; she was even standing in the front row at Bosworth's campaign announcement last July. It was just two weeks after she started working for the Sioux Falls physician, but Batiz no longer supports her former boss.
"Someone who I can't trust to pay her employees I don't want to be making decisions for me in Washington," Batiz said.
Batiz quit working for Bosworth as a Certified Nurse Practitioner in November. Batiz says Bosworth agreed to pay her a salary of $80,000 a year. The official contract is with Batiz's attorney, but she showed KELOLAND News a letter from Bosworth's Meaningful Medicine Clinic.
"I did not get paid what I was promised or enough to survive," Batiz said [Ben Dunsmoor, "Former Nurse: Bosworth Didn't Pay Up," KELOLand.com, 2014.05.08].
Batiz shows Dunsmoor her pay stubs, shows that Bosworth paid her not even a third of what she was promised. And then Batiz drops the hammer on Bosworth's anti-food-stamp rants, saying Bosworth helped her apply for the program that Bosworth continues to meme-bleat makes people dependent on government:
Batiz says she was shorted so much that she had to go on food stamps to feed her family, and Bosworth's office helped her enroll. It's the same program Bosworth has criticized.
"But instead says, 'Hey, I want you to keep working for me. I don't want to have to pay you. Instead we'll help you get on welfare,' and then to turn around and say people who are on welfare are bad people, people who are on welfare are dependent people that was just the end," Batiz said [Dunsmoor, 2014.05.08].
Hypocrisy, lies, exploitation—LeAnn Batiz confirms it all.
Annette Bosworth never stood a chance of winning the GOP Senate primary. Now that Batiz has helped launch Bosworth's crimes to national attention, we may spare unsuspecting donors from wasting their money on this waste of a ballot line.
- David Montgomery offers empirical data showing Annette Bosworth, to the extent she may have any ideology beyond self, is actually the least conservative of the GOP primary candidates.
- David Rookhuyzen reports that the Attorney General's investigation of Bosworth is not related to the allegations forwarded to AG Jackley by Rep. Steve Hickey on Monday.
- Speaking of cheap PowerPoints, Shad Olson goes on Rapid City television with this damning assessment of Bosworth's situation. He also refers to Bosworth's medical practice as "now closed." Really? I hadn't heard Bosworth was no longer seeing patients. Anyone care to drive by 5000 South Minnesota Suite 100 today and confirm?
