"We work in every state, every major city and county, and also do work for the federal government," Rachael Rowland, spokeswoman for Maximus Inc., wrote in an e-mailed statement, explaining why the Virginia-based governmental consulting firm would donate $25,500 to Blagojevich during his tenure as Illinois governor.

Like other contractors interviewed, she said those contributions weren't tied to the company's Illinois state contracts, worth $7.6 million this year. "Maximus supports candidates and officials at the state and local levels of government that share our 'good government' philosophy," Rowland wrote. [Why would the state of Illinois contract with 2 private companies for child support, EBT cards, etc? It stands to reason that Maximus and ACS could be one in the same]

Gov. Blagojevich remembers political insider Stuart Levine spilling a cup of coffee on him during a New York fund-raising trip that is under federal scrutiny, but insists Levine spilled nothing about any illegal scheme to trade government business for campaign cash. "That's ridiculous," Blagojevich said Wednesday. "Absolutely not. Of course not." The Democratic governor spoke for the first time in detail about the 2003 trip as supporters of his GOP rival, state Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka, said an itinerary shows Blagojevich illegally mixed government and political fund-raising. The itinerary lists meetings at New York's Harvard Club between Deputy Gov. Bradley Tusk, top Blagojevich fund-raiser Christopher G. Kelly and representatives of two companies. Those firms, Maximus Inc. and Wexford Health Sources, do millions of dollars in state business each year. Each also has contributed five-figure sums to Blagojevich. Feds probing trips: The Chicago Sun-Times last month reported that the Oct. 29, 2003, trip -- plus another to the East Coast later -- are focuses of a federal pay-to-play probe of state government. "The chief fund-raiser is meeting with people who are interested in government contracts along with a high-ranking member of the governor's staff," said Joe Birkett, DuPage County's state's attorney and GOP candidate for lieutenant governor. "You're setting the table to exchange your governmental decision-making in exchange for a political benefit." Blagojevich campaign spokesman Doug Scofield dismissed the criticism. Kelly and Tusk, he said, never met with Wexford or Maximus -- despite what the "preliminary draft" schedule indicates. "Bradley and Chris were not in any meetings together. I really have no idea why it would be that way on the schedule," Scofield said. "You have a schedule that looks like it's inaccurate in a number of ways."


As a campaigner intent on changing the anything-goes atmosphere in Springfield, Blagojevich railed against Ryan for rewarding insiders and political pals. But Blagojevich has not refrained from awarding appointments and contracts to his benefactors, either. His administration, for example, gave a $214,000 contract to manage the states fleet of vehicles to Maximus Inc. of Reston, Va. The company contributed $20,000 to Blagojevich and has paid former Republican Gov. Jim Thompson, a member of Blagojevichs transition team, to sit on its board.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Company run by Crooks and Liars:

AUTHOR: Sharky - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, February 16, 2011
Maximus is run by a bunch outlaws, & crooks. This company treates it's employees like slaves, demanding for their Call Center agents take only 3 minutes bath room breaks, no matter how long
their medical conditions required the use of toilet facilities.
Their upper managment is very corrupt and unprofessional. Most of their local HR departments will
often fabricate evidence against out-spoken employees reporting illegal activities.

MAXIMUS INC. Headquarters is located in Ralston Virgina. The company set-up a window dressing
compliance hot line (800)350-2017 promising anonymity to employees who report any unethical and illegal activity, in reality it is a trap setup to indentify who is complaining, so corrupt managment
and the local HR departments can later retaliate against whistle blowers.

I can't seem to understand a company with that many complaints of wrong doing, particulary
violation of every federal and state labor laws, can continue to be awarded government contracts.
