Seeing trees, not the forest
Bennett (via Gongwer):
“Tom Noe is a liar and a thief, and his crimes have damaged the public trust. His name is forever associated with corruption. The only thing good that can now come of Tom Noe’s legacy is a renewed commitment to ensuring that his crimes never happen again.”Bob's comments are all well and good and full of the pompous outrage one might expect. But, again, he is allowed to evade two questions:
- How did this interlocked scheme among Republican donors, state officials, GOP operatives and cynical corporate types evolve under his nose over the last two decades?
- What, specifically, is Bennett's proposal(s) to ensure that Noe-like corruption "never happens again"?
