Strictly a coincidence, I’m sure

Less than two months after giving $10,000 to an initiative campaign committee tied to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a well-connected private prison company was tentatively awarded a $20 million contract by the state of California to operate a San Joaquin Valley correctional facility.

Arnold has turned out to be one of the most inept politicians in recent history in California. Ham-fisted, oblivious to subtlety, unable to build coalitions and consensus, he just keeps shooting himself in the foot.
