Elva McCraig Fights the Good Fight

Elva McCraig, a correctional nurse at a state-run prison in Florida, has requested both state and federal investigations into the situation that allowed for the state of Florida to not only purchase land for the GEO Group for the Blackwater facility (at a cost of more than $1.5 million), but also the mechanisms that went into awarding them a $110 million contract to run it. Her complaint is actually very-well researched and quite damming of the insider trading, shady real estate deals, and favoritism within the Florida legislature for former GEO employees. Ms McCraig, I applaud you for your efforts and the exhaustive research you compiled on how GEO has influenced the Florida legislature.
