Mitch Roob Returns to Private Sector. Some Say He Never Left
Former Indiana Family and Social Services Administration director and current Commerce Secretary Mitch Roob is leaving Indiana government to take a job with private wound care specialist company . Have no fear that corporate interests will be less well represented in Indiana state government -- Daniels has appointed an Eli Lily flunky to fill Roob's incompetent shoes.

Mitch Roob, who you might remember from such public sector cautionary tales as Privatizing Welfare Eligibility Determinations and Phantom Economic Development Jobs, and Indiana Doesnt Do Studies, It Does Deals (Just Not Very Well) is, at long last, leaving Indiana state government for the private sector. His long tenure in the Daniels administration raised questions about what video he might have of live boys or dead girls. Now, the world may never know.

1. Just checked in and saw this
I am surprised Roob wasn't tarred and feathered for some of his stunts. Roobs, real name really is, 'low pay jobs Roob'. The stamping plant comes to mind as one of his bigger disasters. He actually thought that workers would allow him to drop their pay from $30 per hour to $15 per hour, minus any benefits they had. Poor Roob had already promised the Illinois company he was trying to lure to Indiana that it, 'was in the bag'. He thought that people were so scared of losing their jobs that they would follow his direction. Didn't work out that way and Roob was shamed in the community. The GM workers were relocated and some retired.
