Earlier this week I mentioned that I would post an update on my rationale for the vote I would make for Speaker of the House. Instead, I’m going to take a road less traveled in politics.

House members, constituents and anyone who knows me, knows why I voted how I did. It really is a sad state of politics when there continue to be repercussions from “inside the dome” when elected officials stand on principle or, God forbid, actually try to represent the people who actually sent us to Columbia.
