Another Journalist Ensnared In Government Contract Hunt

Is it acceptable for someone who writes a newspaper column to do research and writing for the government?

That’s the question columnist Maggie Gallagher asks after Howard Kurtz questions her contract with the Department of Health and Human Services.

From her description of the contract it sounds quite different from Armstrong Williams contract. She was paid to write material for HHS assistant secretary for children and families (ACF) Wade Horn (such as this article – Closing the Marriage Gap) and produce written materials for use by the agency.
