The word “smarmy” comes to mind
June 16 2008 | Jim's Blog,
Honestly... I'm searching for the right word and I can't seem to find it.
It all just feels so darn... dirty.
The TCA... upping the bar on their own questionable tactics have floated $350,000 in taxpayer funds to an Indian tribal faction to win support for the toll road. This faction isn't a controlling faction at all... otherwise the TCA would have to reach into the taxpayers pockets deeper... like the $100,000,000 payoff the last time around.
This was the second act to last weeks TCA tragic drama. They started off the week with their Board of Directors authorizing nearly one million dollars on lobbying expenses. This is the SECOND lobbying firm they have on their payroll (which is funded by taxpayers).
I feel a movie in the works.
Die Hard: TCA. "The Payoff"
Part 1. Board spends another million dollars to buy support.
Part 2. TCA tries to buy off indiginous people with $350,000
