Stupid Is As Stupid Does

UPDATE II: Another story about a local good ol' boy profiting at the expense of the taxpayers. Read First Serve Magazine, Roger Scott Tennis, A Victim of Good Ol’ Boy Politics?

UPDATE: The grand jury decided which side of that statement Valentino was on when they indicted him on a misdemeanor charge of soliciting a campaign contribution in his county office. Read the Pensacola News Journal, Grand jury indicts Gene Valentino.

Rumor is that the Governor will "suspend [Valentino] because of the indictment" and "appoint either Dave Murzin or Holly Benson" to replace him until the criminal charge is resolved.

Escambia County Commissioner Gene Valentino, who is facing a grand jury over alleged improper solicitation of contributions for his re-election campaign, had the following to say:

"On a personal note, I can see why good people don’t run for office.” - Pensacola News Journal, Gene Valentino to face grand jury over meeting

It is alleged that Valentino illegally solicited campaign funds from an Escambia County contractor just before the the Commission voted to rebid a $1.7 million drainage project the contractor lost.

I wonder which side of that statement he thinks he is on.
