A Crack Team

The new Governor of Georgia has assembled a powerhouse team of former lobbyists and legislators to serve on his transition team.  As Zaid Jilani of ThinkProgress.org found, "The list reads like a who’s who list of some of the state’s top special interests and lobbyists — people who have represented corporate giants ranging from Georgia Power to Goldman Sachs."  Included among the incoming team is Dan Lee, a former legislator and former lobbyist for CCA, which already holds thousands of Georgia's prisoners.  Unfortunately, the political climate in Georgia just became even more hospitable to the private prison industry.
