Two Democratic lawmakers from Charlotte Thursday called for the resignation of state Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos.

Sen. Malcolm Graham cited “egregious lapses in management” at DHHS.

Rep. Beverly Earle joined Rep. Michael Wray of Northampton County in a similar statement. The two are ranking Democrats on the legislative committee that oversees the agency.

The department has been plagued by a number of missteps. In the most recent, the agency sent out the personal information of nearly 49,000 children receiving Medicaid benefits to the wrong addresses. Officials blamed human error.

Earle and Graham will join other members of the Legislative Black Caucus Friday morning at simultaneous news conferences around the state to discuss DHHS.
