    but these conflict of interest and separation of personal vs. public interests, are common governmental occurrences and difficult sometimes to deflect. Also, it's quite common that approval of governmental grants in "expedited fashion" are the occasional circumstance rather than the norm. But having been a Program Coordinator for an Arts granting government agency here, I can tell you I faced these issues. When a senior administrator came to tell me in his own words to give preferential treatment to this one applicant, I reluctantly did so by especially highlighting her application towards a grant. And you know what, I even had a friend receive another grant through promoting her credentials as well also indirectly. There were over 100 sites for allocating funding and this was over 20 years ago. What, am I also a crook? P.S. don't care if you don't read my posts.
