Why is it that some politicians cannot go away quietly? Some of our state politicians announce their paid vacations for all to see — Central America, Texas just to name a few. Their expensive trips are paid for probably by the taxpayers; wouldn’t you like an all-expense-paid vacation to a destination of your choice?
We have a local politician that just cannot give up his office, even after being removed from his job on misdemeanor charges by a Superior Court judge. Some people say he got off all the charges lightly. But alas, his wife is running for his vacant position. He is appealing the judge’s decision on some technical wording by the judge. The judge did not find him guilty; a jury of his peers did that job. Why can’t he admit to himself what he did was wrong and go away?
He has fallen victim to feeling he is above the law. This happens to many politicians because of the power and prestige. They forget that they are only in office by our will and support. They work for us, but many do not think they do; Sept. 9 cannot arrive soon enough.
