Nixon Contributors (Alternative Opportunities, INC) Admit The Fix is On

September 21st, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

Alternative Opportunities, INC, a group that has been awarded numerous fee offices by Governor Jay Nixon’s Department of Revenue, (some of the most lucrative) recently acknowledged that they would be awarded a total of seventeen (17) fee offices around the state.  The statement was made at a training session for the group’s new fee office employees.  The group went on to state that they would soon be awarded the contract to run the Deer Creek Fee Office in St. Louis. This office is one of the five most profitable in Missouri

is a multi-state group that has been awarded numerous fee offices by Governor Jay Nixon’s Department of Revenue, some of the most lucrative, recently acknowledged that they would be awarded a total of seventeen (17) fee offices around the state. The statement was made at a training session for the group’s new fee office employees. The group went on to state that they would soon be awarded the contract to run the Deer Creek Fee Office in St. Louis. This office is one of the five most profitable in Missouri.

To date, Alternative Opportunities has been awarded eleven (11) fee office contracts – (Ava, Camdenton, Creve Coeur, Joplin, Lee’s Summit, Nevada, Olivette, Republic, South Fremont-Springfield, Downtown-Springfield, Poplar Bluff). Seven of the 11 offices they have been awarded to date are among the top 25 in the state. To have the audacity to announce they will be given six more only confirms the fact they this allegedly non-partisan group has enough clout to be able to know the results of a bidding process that has not yet been finalized.

While these statements are truthful (at least Alternative Opportunities has learned something from Jeff Smith), they simply confirm what we have known all along – Governor Jay and his cronies at the Department of Revenue are rigging the bids to favor their political backers. How else could they win so many offices and offer to return less money to the state than other bidder?

We will stay on this and report more on their shady finances.
