Last week, the entertaining Gene Stilps cast a public spotlight on more than $3 million in "meritorious bonus payments" that House and Senate leaders handed to staff over the past two years. He sued the bastards.
Now, thanks to publicity prompted by that lawsuit and VoicePA, we know "at least $44,000 in contributions to three Democratic campaign accounts came from those who got unreported bonuses in 2006."
This vindicates our American system, in which citizens have a constitutional right to challenge unresponsive government.
And so the battle rages.
