Sen. Tom suggests fining for special sessions
Political move is either irony or hypocrisy
The Legislature had special sessions because Democrats control the House and Republicans control, narrowly, the Senate. [“Time to fine dawdling lawmakers? Sen. Tom thinks so,” NW Wednesday, July 10.]
The Legislature split when Sen. Rodney Tom won the election as a Democrat, but then joined the Republican caucus.
Sen. Tom now wants to fine members of the Legislature for having special sessions. Irony, or hypocrisy?
