Conflict of Interest?

Quick link here to a pretty good investigative piece from a blogger in Arizona regarding the money CCA contributed to Gov Brewer via shareholders and lobbyists, right before she signed the controversial immigration law.  The potential conflict arises because the bill will likely be a boon to the private prison business, which has a lot of contracts with ICE to incarcerate these immigrants; 3 of CCA's ICE-contracting facilities are located in Arizona.  Mr. Lemons did a great job tying all these pieces together.
