The FBI has launched an investigation into the political influence wielded by the GEO Group in the Florida Legislature. The group has come under criticism in the recent debates surrounding the Blackwater Correctional Facility (which was built after a last-minute budget amendment was passed in 2008, but has not been filled), and the government is wondering whether the nearly $300,000 they've contributed to Florida's Republican party over the last 2 years had anything to do with that. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say yes. Yes it did.
