AG Kane's Private Guns Aim at For-Profit Nursing Homes

This blog criticized NorCo Executive John Brown several times last year over his penchant then for no-bid consultant contracts. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Attorney General Kathleen Kane has done much the same thing. Though she has a gaggle of her own 180 lawyers, she has hired a law firm - Cohen, Milstein, Sellers and Toll - to go after four for-profit nursing homes. It gets to keep $21 million of the first $100 million in fines collecte d. She gets to keep $10,000 the form gave her campaign warchest. Altogther, she's accepted about $350,000 from ten such law firms for similar sole source contracts.

Given that she already has a fairly large staff, I have a problem with deputizing another aw firm to do the work she is supposed to do. But what really bothers me is that these are no-bid contracts.

What kind of goofy comment is this?

Kane is a short-timer who wants to use her influence while she can to cultivate her future job prospects in the private sector.
