PLCB Rape Ad Illustrates Conflict of Interest

Like a pyromaniac preaching fire prevention, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is at war with itself in a costly conflict of interest that sees the agency wasting tax dollars.   On one end of the market, it recklessly spends millions of tax dollars advertising and promoting alcohol sales in a MONOPOLY.  On the other end of the market, it spends millions more in advertising campaigns to educate the consumers on the dangers of alcohol. 

Does this make any sense?  Pennsylvanians don’t think so, and a new controversial ad campaign using your tax dollars, which some critics say blames the victims for rape, has brought this painful conflict to light.  CF Senior Policy Analyst Priya Abraham and Policy Analyst Liz Stelle discuss the damages.
