Governor Katie Hobbs is under investigation over her ties to the operator of group homes for foster kids. It comes after reports that a firm named Sunshine Residential Homes, Incorporated made six-figure donations to the Governor’s inauguration fund and the Arizona Democratic Party, just before getting a large rate hike from the state.

The case was first reported and detailed by the Arizona Republic, and both the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office are looking into this.

Sunshine Residential Homes, Incorporated runs group homes for foster kids, and is the only one out of dozens of operators that was approved for a rate hike during Gov. Hobb’s tenure. It’s a company already on the radar screen of state lawmakers like Republican State Senator TJ Shope.
