I like the observations below because the TAPster who wrote them not only takes aim at everybody, but also dares to defend lobbyists:
“The irony – and hypocrisy -- of this sex scandal is these staffers work for Republican politicians who imposed their personal morals on the state’s citizens by ramming through the proposed constitutional amendment on gay marriage. Perhaps the amendment should’ve said marriage is between a man, a woman and a lobbyist.
“Speaker Tillis’ reputation as a savvy business consultant is tarnished by this mess. He’s handled it pretty badly and appears to have no clue what’s going on with his employees – especially when everybody at the legislature knew something was going on.
“Lobbyists apparently now can have sex only with other lobbyists. Considering the talent pool in the lobbyists’ ranks, most lobbyists will give up.
“The liberal do-gooders like the pin-heads at Democracy NC scored another victory in their war to turn lobbyists into second-class citizens. It’s bad enough that this scandal is destroying careers and marriages, but the sex is with lobbyists, for goodness sakes, and that apparently makes it even worse. One day, somebody will have the guts to tell know-it-alls like Bob Hall and Elaine Marshall that lobbyists work for citizens and taxpayers who have constitutional rights and pay bunches of taxes to run the state.”
