This was nice to see on Twitter today. Heckuva report by Elizabeth Vargas and crew on 20/20 last night. Access given to them by just about every key player. I thought the case worker who talked on camera about opposing the Harrises' adoption of the children they gave away left an opening to bring up Harris' pressure on higher Department of Human Services officials in this and other child welfare matters. But there's  plenty of circumstantial evidence on that.

A full 20/20  written report and video from the show are available at 20/20.

It is more precise to say credit on this should go to Benji Hardy's remarkable reporting. 20/20's report included an image of this cover story, which detailed the lack of consequences for the Harrises.
