Re: “Why Many Northeast Kingdom Voters Chose Trump

Good luck NEK and former steel workers and others. I'm sure your lives will be immensely improved under Trump. Trump is sooooo empathetic.

Re: “Legislature Might Decide Lieutenant Governor’s Race

It would be a damn shame, a damn shame if Broccoli Boy wasn't Lite Gov. I pray to Dog that Phil Scott does not die in office.

Re: “Gubernatorial Hopefuls Minter and Scott Come From Different Worlds — Sorta

Love the caricature of Sue Windmill Minter on this weeks front page. What a great representation of Minter being in bed with the likes of David Blittersdorf. Now theres an image that you dont want stuck in your mind.

Re: “Zuckerman Apologizes for 2013 Remark About Vermont Air Guard

Zuckerman likes to pay by the rules when the rules favor him; otherwise, not so much. Kinda like the campaign financing law.

Re: “Zuckerman Apologizes for 2013 Remark About Vermont Air Guard

Barbara Alslop; from Seven Days Feb 3, 2010:
'Every day I claim the mileage, and I probably shouldnt, says Zuckerman, a ponytailed Progressive who runs an organic vegetable farm in Hinesburg. Beyond that, though, Zuckerman isnt apologizing for his behavior.

How does he get away with what could be described as fraud?

Legislators arent required to submit receipts for their mileage, meals or lodging expenses during the regular legislative session. In January, they simply fill out a form indicating what they expect to spend and then collect biweekly per diem checks based on their claims. Its an honor system. If their circumstances change, legislators are supposed to file a change form adjusting their costs up or down.'

So it's not fraud if Zuckerman lied? He knew his expected expenses were not what he claimed. He lied. He lied. That's fraud. That's embezzlement. Do you understand the meaning of 'an honor system?
