Familiarity breeds ...

Posted By on Sat, Mar 14, 2009 at 6:32 AM

House Speaker Robbie Wills: "... the authority, the tyrant, the despot." Also, as "ubquitous" on KTHV as Craig O'Neill.

That's John Brummett on Wills' role as roadblock to, through his hand-picked Rules Committee, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel's effort to write some small improvements into state ethics laws. (And legislate one stunningly bad disimprovement to the same code.) This same committee was a graveyard this week for another small piece of legislation intended to prevent legislative abuse of travel expenses. Good government? Not exactly.

In due course, the media mad Wills should have a response up on his blog.
