Entornointeligente.com / When officials at a privately run women?s prison in North Florida needed to sell tickets to the local heart association fundraiser, they went to the closest captive audience they knew.

If inmates and their families bought tickets or made contributions to the annual event at the Gadsden Correctional Facility, they?d be rewarded with pizza parties, ice cream socials or a gourmet meal.

But when the promised pizza never arrived after the 2016 Heart Walk event, one inmate complained to a friend, who alerted Rep. David Richardson, the Miami Beach Democrat and forensic auditor who has conducted his own investigations of Florida?s troubled prison system.

Richardson asked the state?s Chief Inspector General to investigate: Did the money ever get to the charity? Were inmates and their families strong-armed into making contributions? Did the promised pizza parties and gourmet meals ever get to the inmates? Was the offered trade an approved policy and if, so, why?
