My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Life Is Tough All Over For Sen. Hanna

State Sen. Deanna Hanna formally denied Monday that she solicited money in exchange for favorable votes, as three citizens pursued a recall effort and the Jefferson County district attorney's office said it was looking into her actions.

Just in case you missed the particulars of her case, the complaint against her stems from a letter he sent to an association of realtors. In it, she demanded $1,400 in "reparations" after that association endorsed her opponent. And quote:

"There are going to be some very important issues ahead of us. You have a choice. So do I," she wrote to the group. "

Even the suggestion of such a direct quid pro quo is unseemly, at best.

However, to put it in writing is just plain dumb. Regardless of her guilt, she seems too dumb to hold office.

[laughter] Yeah, even I can't keep a straight face at that.

Nevertheless, this is not good for her, or, frankly, for the people she represents.
