An audit of the Massachusetts welfare department shows widespread mismanagement. State Auditor Suzanne Bump found the Department of Transitional Assistance paid out $2.4 million to more than a thousand dead people. Also, some children were being claimed by more than one guardian. And, about 30,000 blank EBT cards at five offices could not be accounted for. Interim Commissioner Stacey Monahan took the helm of the troubled agency only 15 weeks ago.
