They could cross promote with Frito-Lay's Doritos and come up with a new flavor....Sharkitos, shark flavored Doritos.

Don't forget to rotate the hiring manager to another department so when the problems to the program finally hit it won't impact his yearly assessment.
How is this "directly connected to the internet" when it is using a router to access the net.
By that definition, NOTHING connects directly to the internet.
I feel like there is a Zen koan here:
The student asked the master, "How will I know when my computer has connected to the internet?" The master replied, "Only when it is connected to nothing will you know".
Planet Money did a great segment on automotive dealerships and should answer most of your questions:
If there is one thing Michigan is good for it's testing vehicles in horrible winter conditions with a crumbling road infrastructure. You get the weather for free and if they can just hire MDOT crews to build the roads you should have no problem testing out some of the most difficult conditions a driverless car will face.
You would think Star Trek would have conditioned people by now to expect all sorts of alternative dress arrangements when it comes to space exploration. I'm waiting for NASA to implement Toga Fridays.
Why piss on the doctors and not the hospital bureaucrats who actually set the pricing rates with insurance. Unless the doctor is running his own practice, it's the hospital network managers who are setting the rates and creating the 2 tier system.
This is akin to pissing on developers for charging a higher price for business level software and a lower price for consumer grade software. In most cases it's not the developer setting the price on that.

They've added security after the recent mishap.
I'll check around with the recruiters I know to see if they have any admin positions they are aware of as well as any internal boards. Sounds like you are doing the right things.
I don't know what your situation is but I can tell you Detroit has a huge demand for tech workers. Ford and GM are hiring a lot of tech workers causing a supply shortage of skilled tech workers in the area. I get calls from recruiters all the time looking for people in the area and recruiters are telling me they are having a hard time filling positions. Don't bother with with job boards and instead make sure you have a LinkedIn account visible to recruiters and post your resume to the local hiring firms.
Would someone tell me how this happened? We were the fucking vanguard of the internet. The Web 2.0 was the technology to own. Then the other guy came out with a Web 3.0. Were we scared? Hell, no. Because we hit back with a little thing called Web 4.0. That's Web 3.0 + 1. But you know what happened next? Shut up, I'm telling you what happened—the bastards went to Web 5.0. Now we're standing around with our cocks in our hands, selling Web 4.0. Suddenly we're the chumps. Well, fuck it. We're going to Web 6.0!

You make an excellent point. Unfortunately it is undermined by posting anonymously. A post that makes the point that individuals should be willing to lose it all should not be sent from the shadows of anonymity.
I don't see any obvious IT related industry donors from the past that might be influencing her (who knows about now). She is on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee so thats probably where it came from. Strange.
I'm sorry...I don't want to see how it looks or play with your PyPy. I will most definitely NOT click on your online demo to show your "Assembler".
