The Florida Assistant Attorney General Who Told Bill McCollum Not to Hire George Alan Rekers

Assistant Attorney General Valerie Martin, who defended in court Florida’s right to ban gays from adopting in the case brought by Martin Gill, alerted her boss Bill McCollum, the attorney general, that she would “recommend NOT using” George Alan Rekers after she consulted with Arkansas officials about the “psychologist.” But McCollum went ahead and paid Rekers a hefty six-figure fee “against my strong cautions,” Martin wrote in an email. Just yesterday, McCollum was once against insisting the hiring of Rekers was the right thing to do. Ugh. If only there were a website where clients who have used Rekers services in the past could review him.[Herald Tribune]
