One must wonder what kinds of funny money games higher-ups in state government are playing. Over the weekend, news was released about a “stolen police report.” It pertained to the stealing of $100,000 in jewelry, $20,000 in cash, and $10,000 in collectable coins from a candidate for state auditor. Said candidate said she carried so much cash because she was in Pennsylvania the day of the 911 attacks, so she learned how hard it could be to get cash. Anyway, said candidate named as a suspect somebody whom operatives from both major political persuasions were led long ago to believe was her paramour. We forgive her of everything, but remain wary of why a highly-competent CPA was dissuaded by party leadership from competing with this candidate of minimal experience in a primary election.
