An investigative report issued yesterday on the two-year college system shows that Shelton State Community College paid House Majority Leader Ken Guin (D-Tuscaloosa) almost $50,000 a year for services that he should have been providing to any constituent who asked for them. He’s already resigned from Shelton, but he’s still feeding from the trough at Bevill State. He’s an embarrassment to his constituents and to the Democratic party.
“A substantial part of the activities described fit squarely within the employee’s duties as a legislator in tracking legislation, and in providing customary constituent services,” the investigative report released Thursday states.
The report goes on to detail a long list of questionable activities in the two-year system.
Really, Mr. Guin, it’s time to take your marbles and go home. People like Rep. Jeff McLaughlin (D-Guntersville) and Rep. Patricia Todd (D-Birmingham) — who believe in honest government that serves all the people – don’t deserve to have their reputations besmirched by association with you.
ADDENDUM: In case anyone wonders, neither Patricia nor Jeff had anything to do with this post. They’re just two legislators whom I admire.
