Good Riddance! When will the rest of this area see that the only way she got her position was because of her husband, A person who has never had a real job, paid for it. If you are Attorney General, why would you take a step down to Treasurer? Because you are termed out and are useless to the private sector! Some people just dont know when to say aloha!!!

people get the kind of government they deserve. for fifteen years I was very active in the Reform Party trying to get people to realize the sort of " representation" they were actually getting, to no avail. The nation is screwed up because of the "Party on" attitude of its people who when it comes right down to it flatly refuse to put in the work it takes to actually control our government. The only people working in the " government industry" are the professional politicians out for what they can get. and tied financially to the " special interests". So don't bitch about these creatures when none of you will put in the actual work it takes to toss them out and replace them with real representatives of the common people. Johnb
