  • WORRIED ABOUT CORPORATIONS: Lt. Gov. Mark Darr
Worthy of breakout is the comment from Lt. Gov. Mark Darr in the Stephens Media story I mentioned earlier on Republican opposition to strengthening of the state public ethics law.

Some also questioned the timing of the measure, as Republicans rise in political prominence.

Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Darr has said he supports the cooling-off period before ex-lawmakers can become lobbyists but wants more information about the donation restriction for corporations.

“When you see the state about to, in my opinion, switch to where it would be a Republican majority (in the Legislature) … yea, let’s make it where you can’t take corporate contributions,” Darr said.

To which I'd say:

1) It is customary, when you move into a bad neighborhood, to install a security system on your business.

2) Have you ever seen a more candid expression of the corporate heart of the Republican Party?
