Millions of Americans are without a job, some just got laid off, and then you have public officials that just want more. It’s one thing how Hinchey, another overpaid government official, who worked for Attorney General Tom Horne blew the whistle on him for things. But now she is suing for a ludicrous amount she couldn’t, shouldn’t have earned in a lifetime $10 million. The right thing to do would be to leave the State and the taxpayers out of the suit.
Arizona has seen enough crazy abuse of power and frivolous lawsuits against the County by it supervisors. Mary Rose Wilcox still has the nerve to hold office after taking $975,000 from taxpayers in addition to her salary. She said, “…in my case, the justice system really did come through.” Where’s our justice from a supervisor that could care less about her constituents as she added to taxpayers’ debt?
Then you have career politician Ann Kirkpatrick who just missed 16 votes right after re-election. That’s not doing their job-in this market those of us that messed up like that would be served our walking papers. Apparently she was in Arizona instead of Washington which brings up a very important point.
Our government wasn’t set-up to create “career politicians” in fact none of our founding fathers would approve of the 113th Congress or most of its predecessors any more than we do. Congress has the worst approval rating in history. It’s time to move into the 21st century.
There’s absolutely no reason our representatives need to be away from the state they represent with modern technology. Furthermore, having our representatives voting from their home office would keep the lobbyists at bay and would be more productive and accountable.
