As reported yesterday in Illinois Review and today in WorldNetDaily.com, former Republican National Committee Deputy Chairman and National Finance Co-chairman Jack Oliver is a lobbyist for Merck, the manufacturer pressing state legislatures to make its $360 HPV vaccine mandatory.
Oliver was the highest fundraiser in RNC history.
Could Oliver's influence have been another reason Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed his executive order mandating HPV vaccinations for all adolescent girls?
