Corruption and Potential for Reform in State Contracts

Chris Freind has a five part series in The Bulletin on conflicts of interest, corruption, and the inability to get reforms passed in how state contracts are awarded.  The articles describe the connection of Gov. Rendell to his former law firm Ballard Spahr, with ties to the Delaware River Port Authority, the Philadelphia Regional Port  Authority, GTECH, and the PA Turnpike, among others.
