Surprise !!!

The state senate last week approved rules prohibiting partisan political work on state time.  My question is "Why wasn't this done years ago?"

The state senate ethics committee still does most things in private.  A proposal to limit the privacy failed.

Surprised?

The Times~Leader did an excellent story Sunday on the people charged in the Luzerne County corruption investigation.  Many are behind, way behind in their taxes.

Surprised?

One of the accused, Thom Greco, owes more than $100,000.  Greco has promised to be paid up in a month.

The others wouldn't comment or couldn't be reached for comment.

Surprised?

Once again, the laws apply to you and I, but not those elected to public office, not those who've already proven their arrogance.

Surprised?

I'm sorry to say that "I'm not."
