Gypsies In The Palace

I guess my rhetorical concern yesterday about OPRI's lobbyist helped prompt one reader to remind about this. OPRI's use of lobbyists with few or no ethical constraints on who they represent has been going on for awhile. I'm not a purist by any means, but I have little use for lobbyists like these. C'mon OPRI. Do you not have an ounce of self-respect that you throw yourselves under the bus with slime like these.

As long as he (the lobbiest) is effective in representing the interests of OPRI, I have no problems

I suspect that in the fast pace of a legislative session the message (pro-PERS members) can get mixed up with the messenger (slime-ball). The flexible ethics of a professional lobbyist who will use questionable tactics to win political battles can hurt PERS members. We don't need to give state senators and representatives any more reasons to vote against us. I agree with Marc's plea to OPRI, there has to be a better representative of our interests.
