    $900 a month lease on a van?!? Keep looking into this, Dem-Gaz. There's more to this than what you've uncovered to this point.

    Martha, Martha, Martha! This is why voters have zero respect for politicians.

    Where is the Ethics Commission on this?

    This is why we don't trust politicians. However a $900 a month lease is not that surprising to me as a former outside salesman who put a lot of miles on my cars. If she had a high mileage lease that would cause extraordinarily high monthly payments; most leases penalize you severely over about 1500 miles a month. I'm not defending her at all but the lease amount is not surprising.

    We had the chance to vote her out last November, after the car lease business -- not enough people paying attention or maybe not enough offended by her actions.
