A reader asks: Why the concern about Maria Sachs, but not John Legg?

in Uncategorized by

An astute reader wonders why there is so much concern currently about where Senator Maria Sachs resides, yet there was little concern during the 2012 elections about where then-candidate John Legg hung his hat:

“While I understand  Jack Latvala’s concern about Maria Sachs’ residence, I don’t understand (actually I do) why no one was interested taking action against John Legg when in my mind (he was) caught lying through his teeth a year ago about his residence.

“If you take a few minutes and watch the video I would think it would be hard to believe Legg was being truthful and candid. However Legg is part of the “in crowd” with the leadership so it seems to me no one wanted to rock the boat.”

“I believe when those who write and enforce the laws can’t live by them, then they have no business being in their  position … but that’s just me.”
