Ex-Corzine AG, current DEA head under investigation for no-bid deals

Here’s a blast from the past, Save Jerseyans:

Anne Milgram served as Jon Corzine’s attorney general from 2006 until 2010 when Chris Christie replaced her with his own pick (future judge Paula Dow). Joe Biden later tapped her to lead the Drug Enforcement Association (DEA) in 2021, but now the administrator of America’s top drug enforcement organization is under investigation for the most New Jersey thing of all:

Multi-million dollar no-bid contracts. 

According to the Associated Press, “[a]t least a dozen people have been hired under such contracts, including some in Milgram’s inner circle handling intelligence, data analytics, community outreach and public relations — work often requiring security clearances and traditionally done by DEA’s own 9,000-person workforce.”

Founded in 1973, the DEA has come under increased scrutiny as of late for alleged corruption and attempts to escape oversight.
