Allegation Of Racism Arises At Medi-Cal Plan
Ventura County officials are calling for an independent investigation in the wake of new allegations of racism at a Medi-Cal plan that serves about 207,000 people. The allegations revolve around an inflated monkey doll that was hanging from what appears to be a neck lanyard above a work cubicle at Gold Coast Health Plan. Leaders of the League of the United Latin American Citizens said they received complaints and photos of the doll from offended employees. (Kisken, 9/14)
