The legislature’s gendarmes were searching in all the wrong places.
General Assembly Police Chief Jeff Weaver revealed this week that his 18-officer department is collecting intel on “anarchists,” including Moral Monday protestors. The Chief and his sleuths are on alert for people who are “against government.”
Here’s a clue, Inspector Clouseau: You’ll find a whole nest of “anarchists” and people “against government” in the legislature – specifically, in the House and Senate Republican caucuses.
The Moral Monday protestors want more government – higher teacher salaries, more help for the unemployed, better health care, etc.
By “against government,” does the Chief mean: “against Republicans”?
Republicans were outraged by the IRS auditing anti-tax Tea Party groups. As Bob Dole would say, “Where is the outrage now?”
