Robot Wars in Tallahassee

Robot Wars in TallahasseeRepublican Florida State Senator Paula Dockery from Lakeland was recently punished by Senate President Mike Haridopolos (not a made-up name) for NOT mindlessly following the Party Line.

It seems that Senator Dockery had committed the ultimate Republican sin of thinking for herself and wanting to do something about what she describes as a “culture of corruption” in the state government.

Whoa, no wonder she was sent to the back of the line, to stand in the corner with no committee chair to her name.

Haridopolos was quoted as mumbling something like “she was not a team player.”

Amazing no, coming from someone who “forgot” to list a personal house and his auxiliary 6-figure salary in his financing statement (a breach of ethics) and gave a committee chair to incoming Senator Jim Norman, who also failed to note on his financial report a half-million dollar house that a campaign contributor had “gifted” to his wife (another breach of ethics)?

    Oh my that FLORIDA SENATE has more than one snake….the very favorite of the SENATE PRES. IS JIM NORMAN… what for the LAS VEGAS INFLUENCE.

    Ms. Paula Dockery got the same treatment MARK SHARPE got for favoring the LIGHT RAIL AND ESPOUSING THE PENNY TAX….

    Of course, arranging for CHAIRMAN OF BOCC was made back before NOVEMBER 2010 elections….The Caballo Higginbotham Puppet and Conejo
    HAGAN Puppeteer are blowing smoke in the heads of BOCC members and getting away with it.

    Getting pretty good paycheck for being a member of BOCC…does not require
    fortitude, honor, reading comprehension, full moral turpitude disclosure
    and refraining from collusion.

    Aren’t we in great shape….

  2. Haridopolis forgot to mention his home and salary FOUR years in a row.

    It seems that forgetting to report things and taking bribes/pay offs in the name of one’s wife is honorable and should be rewarded.

    What in the world have we come to?!!!
