Did Gary Alexander, Governor Corbett’s nominee for secretary of welfare, exaggerate his accomplishments in Rhode Island?
Alexander recently wrote that he saved that state $100 million over the past year and a half with the introduction of an innovative health-care policy.
Alexander served as secretary of health and human services under the administration of former Governor Don Carcieri.
However, the Associated Press is reporting that when it questioned officials in Rhode Island about Alexander’s out of this world accomplishment they failed to back-up Alexander’s claim.
Rhode Island has a new governor, and according to the AP Lincoln Chafee’s staff did not know how Alexander arrived at that figure.
This could come as the second set-back for Corbett. Corbett’s first pick for chief of staff, Brian Nutt, abruptly resigned shortly after that announcement.
Calls to Corbett’s press office have not been returned.Calls to Corbett’s press office have not been returned.(You can read Alexander’s report by clicking on Rock The Capital.)
