Words of wisdom from Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Other than unavailing comments against U.S. Senate Rule XXII, a non-starter for now, I agree with her about the need for Democrats to focus on corruption.
I've spoken out against political corruption for some 44 years, from Tennessee to Florida to our Nation's Capital. Here in St. Johns County and St. Augustine, I've stood up against corruption involving environmental justice, pollution and pervasive 15th Amendment violations by our St. Johns County Republican politician machine.
Glad that national Democrats recognize political corruption is a "thing."
Developers here in St. Augustine and St. Johns County benefit from a corrupt system without lobbyist disclosure, local ethics regulation, effective environmental protection, a County Charter, Ombuds, or other checks on corporate. abuses of power.
It shows in flooding, dead wildlife, deforestation, wetland-filling, and devious Dull Republican perversion of our democracy for corporate interests.
From The New York Times:
That’s a big legislative agenda, but it isn’t big enough. We also need to use every tool of the presidency to deliver for working people.
