In what appears to be a cynical effort to swell the Oregon prison population and offer cheap prison slave labor to Nike, Kevin Mannix has slyly chosen to target some of the most repulsive people in Oregon as future prison inmates and eventual prison slave labor. Based on the ballot measure title alone, who wouldn't want to incarcerate repeat sex offenders and repeat drunk drivers. But the true intent of Kevin Mannix's Oregon Ballot Measure 73 is more likely cheap prison labor and profits for Corrections Corporation of America and Wackenhut Corrections Corporation.

Kevin Mannix is the chief Petitioner for Oregon Ballot Measure 73.

Google: "+mannix “corrections corporation of america””, you'll find numerous references to Mannix's 2005 offer to Nike Corporation to close their factories in Indonesia and use Oregon prison labor.

Since the inception of privately run prisons, the percentage of US citizens in prisons has steadily increased and now exceeds that of any industrialized nation in the world. Kevin Mannix seems to be the Oregon front man for a corporate profit prison system and the promotion of a private prison labor force in Oregon.
