Harold Ford Senior and the Med

If you are not aware of the agreement between Harold Ford Sr. and the Med, I have attached the agreement and the various amendments. The first agreement is for $10,000 per month paid by the Shelby County Health Care Corporation (the Med) to The Harold Ford Group, LLC, a consulting group with principal offices located at 7966 Fisher Island Drive, Miami, Florida 33109, who shall hereinafter forever be known as “The Consultant”.

The Consultant agrees to assistant with lobby and consultation services with the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The cost, only $10,000 per month payable monthly which was later reduced to $7500 per month.

This will give you some idea of how money is dispersed from that big stash in Washington, your tax money.

    I found this (thought I’d share):
    When legislators lose re-election or choose not to run again for office, they often find a second career as a highly paid lobbyist, meeting with their former colleagues and touting the positions they are paid to promote.

    Of course, these are positions they supported while in office, so such jobs are not completely mercenary, yet they are widely considered an abuse of one’s former position. This practice is, however, quite legal. Routinely, political scandals surface that have their roots in some lobbyist activity or other — usually unlawfully large gifts to lawmakers, or quid pro quos of some form.

    What successful outcome of any came from paying Mr. Ford $90,000 dollars for his “consulting”/ “lobbying” efforts?

    Could the money have been used more “wisely”? Or was this one of those “you wash my back, and I’ll wash yours” agreements?

    Just asking!
