CCA's Tremendous Influence

Just a quick link here to an article from a few weeks ago (apologies for the delay) detailing CCA's (and to a lesser extent, the GEO Group's) incredible political influence, and how that influence has ensured for them a steady flow of prisoners, including across state lines.  It discusses specifically how targeted political action in California helped to double the state's contribution to the company's revenue as its prison population exploded, and how difficult it can be to accurately determine the influence the industry truly has.
