Kind of looks like Jabba, don't he?
Big news folks, the leading republican contender for the Office of Commissioner of Insurance skated through an Ethic's Commission hearing on the supposed impropriety of dumping $106,000 bucks out one of his campaign accounts into another without saying the magic word. How many campaign accounts has this guy got?
The kicker of the story is that another republican candidate for the same gig, Maria Sheffield, has been screaming bloody murder about how rotten the move was and has sent out various and sundry press releases about it. Apparently, the members of the State Ethics Commission are not on her mailing list. But all is not lost for the fair Maria, with typical republican bloodlust for money, she's now crowing about how the cash difference between to the two campaigns is only $8900 bucks.
I can't wait to see the fundrasing numbers from last quarter when they finally get reported because that'll tell us who's gonna be in the run-off. I'm picking Ralph "Jabba" Hudgens vs Maria Sheffield and if the readership will participate in the republican primary as well as the republican run-off, you can help make my dream come true.
I really, really, really want the fall ballot to read:
Shane Bruce (L)
Maria Sheffield (R)
Mary Squires (D)
Please note the headliner position due to the spelling of the last name, that's worth 20% right there!
