What All That Lobbying Money Goes To

Wackenhut (A branch of the GEO group) recently won a $6 million contract in Wisconsin to transport prisoners for the Milwaukee County Sheriffs' office.  This came after an investigation revealed they had hired someone who spent months in jail as the head of security for the county courthouse.  I'm absolutely certain they could not have won this contract without the connections and money they have circulating in the county legislature, because why would anyone rehire a company that puts criminals in charge of security at a government facility?
