While DeVore’s taxpayer paid staff claim there is a bright line between their staff activities and campaign activities –
Chuck DeVore himself just set them all ablaze.
What am I referring to? DeVore took his per-diem payment on Tuesday then had an Assembly Sargeant drive him to the Airport so he could fly down to Southern California to a debate on “John and Ken”.
DeVore wasn’t the only person who signed in and skipped out – but he was unique in one thing… (citing the Assembly Daily Journal)
By unanimous consent, the following Assembly Members were granted leaves of absence for the day:
On legislative business: Assembly Members Bass, Gilmore,and Nava.
On legislative business, and waiving per diem: Assembly Members De La Torre and Villines.
Because of illness: Assembly Members Evans, Hall, and Logue.
Notice – no DeVore. While tax-raising Assembylmember Mike Villines waived his per-diem, DeVore did not.
Chuck DeVore holds himself out to a higher standard in his campaigning.
In any event – the taxpayers bought DeVore’s plane ticket that day, how nice.
Yet – when you look at the above – he looks like an Incumbent Assembly Politician… or better a Scum-Sucking Politician / Thief.
I don’t know if I’d get quite that dramatic – but I rather think I’d settle for the term Hypocrite.
