A Medicaid birthday bash nearly turned into a bust Tuesday afternoon. A security employee at Rudisill Plaza threatened to call police on eight people if they followed through on their plan to enter the building and deliver an oversized birthday card and flowers to Medicaid staff at the Allen County Division of Family Resources.
After a brief discussion, the guard agreed to let Medicaid recipient Kellie McCann and the Rev. Karen Staton visit the Family Resources office. “They got the idea. … I told a lot of people why we were there, what we were doing and who we were,” Staton, pastor of Destiny Life Church, reported a short time later.
