The Iowa Republican: The Iowa Film Office: We've seen this script before

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

For those of us who still enjoy reading the newspaper, there has been
more than enough column inches recently about the Iowa Film Office,
the state tax incentive that has lured the film industry to Iowa, and
the serious lapses in that program. The Governor is incensed, the
State is on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars, the State
Auditor and Attorney General have been called in, and some of the
people responsible for the debacle have been fired. After reading two
articles in the Des Moines Register regarding this unfortunate reality
show, it has became apparent how the remaining acts of this script
will play out. The story will seem familiar to anyone who has watched
government botch a program and then scurry to offer up a scapegoat.
