Jones Street quote of the week

Jones Street quote of the week

- in Legislative Watch

It’s only Monday morning, but it will be tough for anyone to outdo Rep. Mike Stone’s explanation of the secret meeting he ran last week for House Republicans on video poker:

“I didn’t run anything except the agenda.”

As reporter Andy Curliss of the News & Observer  explains in his report on the matter, Stone is a Sanford convenience store owner who already profuits from video poker-like machines in his store.

Sounds like Stone may want to get a little ethics refresher before he gets much further into his freshperson year at the G.A.
