Lori Turner’s new gig: VP at KHN

Announced today: Kettering Health Network has hired Congressman Mike Turner’s wife, Lori Turner as their new Vice President of Market Development and Strategic Communications.

Her firm did some work for Kettering Health Network back before the “Got Midwest” giant FAIL.

Of course, considering many of Kettering’s top administrators are huge donors to her husband’s campaign, and Raj Soin just bought the naming rights to the new hospital in Beavercreek- this is just one more way to buy a Congressman.

UPDATE

The position is a new position- and was not posted. This is highly abnormal for KNH- they normally hire from within- or post positions- also, Turner will be one of a smattering of non-Adventists at the VP level. [End update]

Ms. Turner’s former firm, “The Turner Effect” was not very shy about doing work that normally bright people would avoid- like having a GSA schedule and doing work for the Army Corps of Engineers while her husband sits on the Defense Appropriations Committee. She also did work for the Home Depot Political Action Committee, which would be an easy way to skirt normal campaign funding restrictions.

    I mean one could write paragraphs on why and Turners sugar daddies have lost clout and influence by his direct actions.  MTC is owned by BAE which is shutting operations in Dayton.  NCR is gone.  National City is gone.  Fleecing military contractors is a little to high profile, so why not the Medicaid/Medicare system that caters to keeping Baby Boomers alive and our country poor.  What more would one expect out of the Turners?

    Smackdown!. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 7
