Lawmakers must disentangle themselves from donors

With all due respect, I’d like to recommend that the Alaska State Legislature and the governor not pass another law until they’ve cleared up one critical and obvious issue: They must firmly and legally say “no” to the vast amounts of money being donated to them for political purposes!

It’s getting ever more difficult to take the guys at the top seriously, when we (on the more humble end of the scale) all know that there’s a lot of wining, dining, gift-giving, and gift-receiving that goes on behind closed doors.

Sorry to be so blunt, but someone’s gotta say it!

Thank you for reading through my message. Again, I mean this with the deepest respect.
