Arizona Gov. Publicly Shaming Citizens with THIS Hashtag! [Read]

Governor Doug Ducey is taking his #governing of #Arizona to a #new level. He is calling out #deadbeat dads who aren’t paying child support (and I hope moms, too!) with the #hashtag #DEADBEAT on Twitter. Way to take it to the millennial generation, dude!

Arizona’s “Hashtag Governor,” as Doug Ducey likes to call himself, announced yesterday that his state will start using social media to publicly shame deadbeat dads who refuse to pay their child support.

“It’s simple,” he said during Arizona’s State of the State address.

“If you’re old enough to father a child, then you’re old enough to accept financial responsibility for that child,” Ducey continued. “If you don’t want your embarrassing – unlawful – and irresponsible behavior going viral: Man up, and pay up.”

The Department of Economic Security has already started tweeting out the names, photos, and amount due by offending fathers on its Twitter feed. Each post is accompanied with the hashtag “#deadbeat”.

Kudos to him for calling losers out for what they are. If you have a kid, you pay to play, period.
