I'm Not the Only One

Who fears the ramifications of the influence of corporate money on politics and politicians. Today's link goes to a very interesting piece from the Palm Beach Post about the investment corporations have made in recent years in Florida politics via campaign contributions and lobbying, and how that investment has helped secure one of the most "pro-business" legislatures in recent history.

Most noteworthy for my purposes is the fact that the GEO Group has donated over $100,000 in recent years, leading up to the recent push to privatize much of the state system (which they would inevitably benefit from).
