Quote of the Day

“I think they all stink, to be honest with you,”
-Gov. Jeb Bush, about political funds

The new, much heralded ‘Gift Ban’ on lunch from lobbyists to Florida legislators has a slight problem. As Steve Bousquet of the St. Petersburg Times notes:

In Florida in 2006, a lobbyist cannot buy a legislator a stick of gum. But it’s still legal for a lobbyist to give $10,000 to a fund controlled by a legislator.

Ain’t progress great?
Now, everybody talk like a pirate. Looting and pillaging is alive and well.
