From TruthOut, news that the Department of Justice awarded former Attorney General John Ashcroft a $52 million contract, “among the biggest payouts reported for a federal monitor,” to help the US Attorney’s Office in New Jersey monitor leading manufacturers of knee and hip replacements.
$52M to help one state in one precise industry. Interesting.
I wonder how much monitors have been getting to check out toy manufacture. I wonder what the total budget of the New Jersey US Attorney’s office might be.
It’s good to be a paid-off crony.
