As the SD Mainstream Media sleeps a letter writer points out Representative Gordon Howie’s obvious conflict of interest with his tax proposal

By the Way – did I mention I own a lot of Real Estate?

Representative Howie says it just ‘makes sense’ that he would be saving a lot of moolah with his proposed tax plan;

According to the Web site www.co. pennington.sd.us/PropertyTax, Howie and his various limited liability companies pay +/- $80,000 per year in property taxes. With his annual tax break of almost $28,000, he would have to spend almost $1.4 million to burn up his savings.

Can you see who his plan helps?

Gordon, you make a mockery of a democratic society.

Hey, hey, hey – be easy on Howie now, he can’t help himself, he’s just acting republican. His other brother republican are getting huge bailouts and now he wants his.

When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.

I think it amazing. When Hamilton became the first Secretary of Treasury he paid himself only half of what he made as a lawyer, in fact after his tenure was over, he was in debt (partially because of the whore he was keeping) but mostly because of the job. He never once took an inside deal. Man have things have changed? Huh?
