HYPOCRITE Rep. Matthew Hill

Well, Hilly boy says that Governor Bredesen should return donations allegedly given by members of the Tennessee Highway Patrol or their relatives in return for promotions. I have no problem with that, Bredesen probably should.

However, when is Rep. Matthew Hill going to return the money he was given by Rep. Chris Newton, the only person who has pled guilty in the FBI's Tennessee Waltz sting? This looks like the pot calling the kettle black. We need Matthew Hill out of office if we want true ethics reform in Tennessee's government.

Here's Hill's own words:
It’s just as important that ethics reform doesn’t just stop in the House (of Representatives), but extends to the executive branch as well.” Hill and others said that ignoring this issue would block true and meaningful ethics reform and restoration of trust in the government.

Wouldn't it be nice if Hill would listen to his own words sometime? It's interesting that David Davis did not have his name attached to this. Perhaps there is only so much nonsense he can put up with in regard to Hilly boy.

It would do all these politicians well to read this article from the Kingsport Times News. Reform starts with each individual lawmaker, not with finger pointing.
