    in the U.S. 90% of all privatized prison facilities are operated by two companies - CCA and Geo Group - and both are members of ALEC we can see their influence.

    Recently the states of Maine, Ohio and one other have all gained republican Governors and a majority in their assemblies and immediately appointed former CCA or Geo wardens to head their Dept's of Corrections - and now are saying they want to privatize all or part of their prison systems, it becomes obvious what the underlying agenda is.  That agenda is driven by ALEC and the conservatives - all tied in together.  Prison has become their cash cow and prisoners a commodity.

    It is immoral and corrupt.
