A scandal in retrospect

I think when we look back at the last decade or so of politics in this state, we’ll remember most the corruption – the downfall of the speaker, the ag secretary and now the ex-post facto governor scandal. What makes this era different is that this is not machine politics at work. These are simply bad actors at a time when the system is easily abused and abuse overly tolerated.
This is a particularly dirty era in the game. And not enough people willing to say so.
