On his way into the NH State House to file his candidacy papers, Martin O'Malley stated he is against for-profit incarceration and that corporations are not people.

Martin O'Malley was the first candidate to show up at the New Hampshire State House to file his official candidacy papers this morning.  As he was climbing the steps into the building, I asked him about the problem of "governing under the influence."

"I'm against private prisons, and I don't believe corporations are persons," O'Malley said.  He then proceeded up the stairs, into the State House, and to the office of the Secretary of State.
