Wills pays dividends

Posted By on Sat, Jul 18, 2009 at 7:35 AM

Taiwan certainly got its money's worth out of giving House Speaker Robbie Wills an expenses-paid trip to the country. This is how influence-peddling works. You scratch my back, I'll kiss whatever.

Wills -- and all the other legislators off junketing recently -- think they've done us a favor by taking special interest boodle rather than charging taxpayers. If the trip is worthwhile to an Arkansas public official, a true business trip, the state should pay for it.
