"I am at my wits end."  Kevin Weisseenborn  Michigan Department of Corrections manager.

In order to save 12 million dollars a year, Michigan hired a private contractor to feed prisoners last December.  But it's been nothing but trouble.  Ever since Aramark Correctional Services of Philadelphia came in, maggots in prison food have been found.  Workers have been caught smuggling contraband , others have been caught having sex with inmates, there have been food shortages and inmates are getting angry.

The Free Press says one Aramark Food Service director showed up drunk and failed a breath test.

The state has a three year 145 million dollar contract and the Governor is now actively trying to find a way to get out of it.
