So when the Times asks my District 14A Rep. Dan Severson what his top priorities are for the current legislative session, how does he respond?
In a Sunday Times news report, he said we need to politicize the judiciary more by letting judges campaign freely, and then allow their impeachment when we don’t like how they judge.
Oh, and we need to curb the obvious epidemic of voter fraud (who knew?) by requiring state-issued picture IDs at the polls.
This is like Custer fretting at the Little Big Horn that he lost his comb in all the ruckus. Or the Titanic captain, as the last lifeboat is lowered, worrying whether there is enough caviar for the rest of the voyage.
I beseech Severson to instead focus his attention on solutions for the actual (as opposed to the imaginary) problems facing our state and his constituents.
People’s lives are being devastated daily by this economic crisis.
He is in a position of leadership. Please lead.
The best part of the whole thing is to read through the comments. Gary Gross aka "Ray4746" spent the day breaking out the talking points in defense of Severson. The echo chamber surely earned his salary today...
While I applaud the efforts of Snyder, I caution people NOT to be surprised that the guy who has been more concerned about making divorce more difficult than any economic issue would continue ignoring real issues.
