Politics as usual

It is common knowledge that if you give campaign contributions to the right attorney or the right judge in the county, you and your family will receive justice. However if you step out of line or otherwise do not follow the good old boy system and know no one, good luck. You will be on your own. Jobs have been handed out by who you know or someone code named the Godfather. Promotions and State and County jobs such as at the tax office, the DSS office, the Courthouse and so on are bartered by a handful of greedy men. Just look at Judge Sasser's job. It was made and created for this banker's son by the former Senator, RC Soles. Judicial District 13 was morphed into 13A and 13B by a Bonner Stiller bill that RC Soles crafted. The taxpayers should be furious. Laws, jobs and programs are manipulated for the good of a few in Columbus County. Other counties do not work in such a manner. But this one does and I speculate it will never change. The elected officials are only as good as those they represent and mirror a cross section of their constituents. Term limits will fix this. Sasser must go as he looks down on those that are from humble means. Now he uses his position to attack? How dare he?
