I'm talking about House Speaker-to-be Robert Nutting.
How come he hasn't been prosecuted? Isn't taking money from the government a crime anymore?
There are people serving jail sentences for doing a lot less.
I've been waiting for an uproar from the people and from his fellow legislators.
I've spoken to several people on this subject and I was amazed by their comments, like, "What do you expect. It's not our money," and, "They will never do anything to one of their own."
I guess maybe they are right.
Congressman Charles Rangel, who went on "trial" before some of his fellow lawmakers, was found guilty on 11 counts of ethics rules. I bet he will come out of it with a slap on the wrist.
For God's sake, people, wake up! All the money these people are spending is coming out of our pockets.
There is an old proverb: You get the kind of government you deserve.
As for me, I'm going to call the attorney general and try to find out why Nutting is not in jail.
