Doolittle not helping us

Since chasing cash is an almost full-time activity for some of our lawmakers, it should come as no surprise that Congressman Doolittle ranges far and wide to get his share. A few thousand here … a few thousand there from Indian tribes as far away as Mississippi and Louisiana.

Nevada County folks who tried to get the congressman’s attention were advised to hire a lobbyist. Seems the way to the congressman’s heart, or pocket book, is to pave the way with a taxpayer-funded lobbyist. All this time we thought he was elected to represent us. Come election time, gerrymandered districts not withstanding, it will be payback time for the voters. Doolittle appears to have done a lot for nonconstituents but little for the people he was chosen to represent. Let’s repudiate Doolittle’s do nothing at the ballot box.
