    Oh my, this private prison company will rake in money from arrests of those who don't have their IDs.

    Lobbyists Tie Brewer Administration To Private Prisons - Phoenix News Story - KPHO Phoenix


    PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Gov. Jan Brewer took center stage last Tuesday night after she officially clenched the Republican nomination. Standing just behind her was a man most Arizonans would not recognize.
    He’s Chuck Coughlin, Brewer’s campaign chairman, policy adviser and a lobbyist for the largest private prison company in the country. And he’s one of two people in the Brewer administration with ties to Corrections Corporation of America.
    The other administration member is communications director Paul Senseman, a former CCA lobbyist. His wife still lobbies for the company.

    I have reading about this for months. You don't think it is weird she has so many ties to the private prison company? I don't care who are, if you are taking campaign money from a private prison company,I will have an issue with it.
    I have a real issue with all these private prisons popping up and our leaders being involved with them. I have seen many stories where people are getting harsher sentences, or being wrongfully convicted, then sent to a private prison or juvenile facility.

    Mixing apples and Gorillas, The Governor has absolutely NO SAY AT ALL in how the Judges in Courts sentence, NO SAY what so all in how the Legislature drafts its laws and votes on them.

    States are turning to private jails because of the COST. Because the COURTS are forcing them to release prisoners due to over crowding.

    By the way another opportunity missed by you to take to task a leftwinger on assumptions while attacking the right.

    Look you fucking RETARD the thread is making a claim that because a Governor has an aide tied to some Business it is bad. I am pointing out that no one on the left minded one whit that Obama has ties to business that gets funding from the Government. You know staying with the theme of the thread?

    So you admit to doing the very same thing, you are calling me out on?

    Cool!

    And before you start, I have a real problem with anyone privatizing their prisons.

    Now link for me where I have ever claimed to be impartial on any of the matters you keep claiming to be impartial on.

    And the Government does not have the money to build as many prisons as they need, they turn to private prisons for the COST. Your link clearly shows that as to why they would privatize the three prisons you were complaining about.
