UPDATE 10:40 a.m.: Citizens VP Paul Palumbo announced the state-run insurer would competitively bid the contract for home inspections after the controversy. It's unclear what role Alex Sink's letter played, as pressure came from a number of places.
As the Citizens Property Insurance Corporation meets this morning, CFO Alex Sink is adding more pressure to the state-run insurer about a $60 million no-bid contract for home inspections.
Sink, a Democrat running for governor, wrote a letter to Citizen's Chairman Jim Malone asking to change the contract to a competitive bid process. A Georgia company is already suing to stop the deal, which was first reported by the Times' Kris Hundley. For the full press release, read below.
