Worst. senator. ever.

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2007 at 6:00 AM

That would be Death Star Bob Johnson, senator and Bigelow street commissioner. Read John Brummett's quotes from  Johnson on his intention to not only beat a severance tax increase in behalf of his masters at Stephens, but to cripple state government forever if Gov. Beebe considers an intitiated act to restore basic fairness to our severance tax system. Might as well start the initiated act campaign now. Any legislative debate about the issue is a non-starter, Johnson believes. He wants his boys to deplete a finite resouirce, pay nothing to the state for the privilege and to pay nothing for the road and environmental damage they cause.
