Robert McCartney is Right
“The worst political scandal in the county since the 1960s should be the jolt needed so residents fully admit that corruption is a reality, not just a perception, and then definitively end it.” —Robert McCartney, Washington Post (May 18, 2011)
I agree with his assessment 100 percent. As I stated last year in my post “We Have Met The Enemy, and It Is Us,” we have nobody but ourselves to blame for being uninformed and voting on name recognition, a pastor’s endorsement, or a nice campaign photo when we go to the polls (if you go). Please, be ashamed of what Jack Johnson has done to tarnish the County’s reputation, but let’s all be ashamed of ourselves for not doing better, because we can.
