Oh yeah, and guess who directed that King and Collins-Smith be booted out? Our grinnin' governor. They didn't bow down quite enough to suit him. Instead, he backed candidates who helped defeat the ethics reform legislation introduced by King and Collins-Smith. Bob Ballinger was hand-picked by the governor to defeat King, and supported, with prejudice, by the Crawford County Republican Committee and Rep. Charlene Fite and her husband Tom. The same Tom Fite who was precluded from running for office in 2010 because he pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud. Birds of a feather, huh? The Fites and the Repubs in Crawford County probably thought that sucking up to the governor would garner them favor. Maybe not so much now that the governor's family has been implicated in the bribery schemes. Does the governor have objections to ethical public servants? Why? Funny how no one else besides, King and Collins-Smith, said anything about ethics reform until they began to be caught by the feds. Our governor is such a hypocrite and the "reforms" he proposes are laughable. The only way to really change things in our corrupt state house is to install new members and get a governor who doesn't think he has been elected dictator.
