Ex-Florida prison boss: Drunken orgies tainted system

Softball, drunken orgies and a prison system run like the mafia. That’s what Florida’s former prison secretary says he inherited when he took over one of the nation’s largest prison systems two years ago.

In fact, on his first day on the job, James McDonough says he walked into his office — the same one his predecessor used — and there was crime scene tape preventing anyone from entering.

“That was an indication we had a problem in the department,” McDonough told CNN in an exclusive interview before he stepped down last Thursday.
