The case for nepotism is weak? Look again the spouse of an employee recieved several contracts. Even worse, the person WHO awarded the contract is the Spouse of the contractor. Why don't you try and research your facts more closely? In private industry this type of behavior is "acceptable". However, in local, state and federal government, this type of business practice is not acceptable. Irregardless of the dollar value of the contracts! Your post claims "over the top"? I do not agree one bit.
I have no doubt there are other agencies that have ethical breaches, but no one is above the law and all SHOULD adhere to the law.
to reason with you is like talking to a mule.

I have been asked if I have an inside source in the magazine. I do. It is Fabian West who inadvertantly sent me copies of internal e-mails that were flying around the office after I sent her an e-mail when I saw the article. She must have it Reply All.

These are public documents as they would have been accessible under the Freedom of Information act anyway.

I do read and think however based upon your "replies" and "contributions" to this discussion, I think it is you with the questionable genetic pool. No one here has bothered to make a viable attempt to say why this is not a case of nepostism and a huge violation of state purchasing policy.

No suprise here. The management of the magazine has been a great place for the governor to place 2 of his "skirts" (you know who you are), then the magazine gets caught being naughty with the Buckaroo Ballers, and now the photography scam. OMG...what can possibly be next??

But hey, it is an "enterprise" branch of government. The last time the magazine made the headlines they were quick to respond with a pointless editorial in the Sunday paper. WHere is management now?

What a shame. "Professionals" and "management" at the magazine doing business like this. Lest not forget other discrepancies reported on this website over the past few months. Ms. West you are operating without a net.

I wonder when someone at the AG's office or the State Auditor will pay attention? My guess it will be at a time when it is way too late and the Secretary of the Tourism Dept will pay the price for the sins of Ms Hess and others who look the other way.

For those of you who support this type of behavior, speak up, and not behind an alias.

For the person who knows about the Governors "skirts" tell us more!!
