PR Laundering Update: Subcontracting Unusual, Says Industry Publication

Marc Longpre of PR Week wrote a piece on Thursday concerning the flap over the Rubenstein PR contract involving CIRM and charges of "laundering."

The article contained the following paragraph:
"Several PR pros told PRWeek that while being subcontracted through a law firm happens on occasion in the private sector, they had never heard of such an instance with a taxpayer-funded organization. Still, one source said that because of the small amount of money involved, the urgency of the matter, and the short-term nature of the arrangement, it did not seem to be a 'big deal.'"
