Boom!

The House is auditing state departments. From the Political Insider guys:
“I haven’t spent a lot of effort asking if there is going to be any cooperation. I am just trying to do my job,” (Speaker of the House Glenn Richardson) said. “If refuse to cooperate … they will have a budget of zero. This is not a request. You are going to have a zero in your budget if you don’t come forward with information.”

I don't know which is more ridiculous, the idea that the departments would refuse such an audit, or that the Speaker of the House would threaten to completely defund them. I think I have a man crush on the Speaker.

Don't go too far with that man crush thing Travis. The Idea Guy is lifting his ideas from activist bloggers these days. Good Legislators plagerize, Great Legislators steal...
