Rich Miller looked at other state capitols wrestling with sexual harassment in an article yesterday.
If you enjoy watching politicians twist in the wind, you will like what he found.
An article found in Florida talks of end of session “closers.”
“They’re called “closers,” a reference to the end of the session when lobbyists need amendments tucked into bills and budgets — and will go to great lengths to get the legislative votes to pass them.”
That reminds me of the Chicago Republican who was an avowed opponent to ERA.
After a “date” with an ERA supported, he ended up voting for that Constitutional Amendment.
It also brought to mind the line in a song from the musical “Boss” that talked about “the girls that kept their jobs with their tails.”
Before my time, but I was told by an older male that it referred to Illinois Bell employees recruited from small Illinois towns to live in the “big city” of Springfield.
