Senate cash grab is just wrong

Posted By on Wed, Jan 27, 2010 at 5:59 AM

The state Senate's decision to allow sitting senators to rake in campaign contributions while they're sitting in the coming fiscal session is bad policy. There also should be a no-gift rule before and after for a decent period.

Any slight advantage given possible election challengers by the cessation of sitting senators' rake of lobbyists' money during a legislative session is offset by the enormous advantage enjoyed by incumbent senators. Most pile up contributions unopposed for a slush fund.
