Today’s Democrook Spotlight: Gov. Jay Nixon Awards $1.1 Billion Contract to HMO After They Contribute $66,500 to His Campaign

Yes, Jay Nixon… You win today’s Democrook Spotlight Award.

It’s like he’s Obama Junior.
Missouri Democrat Governor Jay Nixon awarded a $1.1 billion contract to a subsidiary of Centene after the company gave $66,500 to his reelection campaign.
The Political Mommentary reported:

Missouri awards $1.1 billion contract to insurance industry donor Centene following campaign contributions.

An insurance company without a license to operate an HMO in Missouri was recently awarded a contract from the Nixon administration. The deal, totaling $1.1 billion, blocks similar firms from competing to provide healthcare to nearly 450,000 of Missouri’s poor.

It is being accused that the contract award followed $66,500 in campaign contributions from Centene and its CEO (Michael Neidorff) directly to Nixon’s re-election campaign. Since 2006, more than $400,000 has been contributed from the Clayton-based company to a handful of Missouri politicians.  See their profile on Open Secrets here.  And apparently Pay to Play is actually a game the company plans to win.

Now let’s wait and see if the corrupt liberal media in Missouri will cover this.

UPDATE: Go figure. The company that lost the contract has ties with the Romney Campaign.
