Can you say "conflict of interest," Greg Reed? An alert contributor to the "Alabama Voters Opposed to Forced Ultrasound" Facebook group pointed out that the chair of the Senate committee in charge of this legislation is a vice president at Preferred Medical Systems.

Since 2001, Preferred Medical Systems has had one mission: To provide a complete ultrasound solution for our customers. We are the exclusive authorized distributor of SAMSUNG MEDISON Ultrasound products in the southeastern United States.“Additionally we are one of the nation’s leading sellers of pre-owned ultrasound equipment for all major brands.”


Here's the information on the contact us page:

Greg Reed - Ext. 27
Vice President
Cell: 205.388.1793
Fax: 205.295.1554

So, let me get this straight.... the party that ran against "double dipping" by state employees has no problem with the chair of a committee overseeing legislation that directly benefits his business?

3. Gee, let me find my 'shocked' expression

This whole crowd is so incredibly predictable. Their 'conflict of interest' is more like a 'conflict with humanity'.

4. They don't even try to hide it anymore.

I swear, my head is going to fall off from shaking it side to side.

Reminds me of the urine testing in Florida and the Gov's connection to the testing company (past or present).

If I were younger, I'd look into running for office so I could die a millionaire!

Day late and a dollar short!

7. Isn't this how Alabama ALWAYS does it?

So.. Not really "news". It's really just standard operating procedure.
