[Re; GOP apparatchik Susan Hurley takes issue with VNS Story on Sen. Wagner entitled "The power in politics is MONEY, state sen. says:" Her comment length exceeded that allowed by the VNS software.
Therefore VNS is running it as a letter to the editor so the full statement can be presented.]
1. I was there, and this is taken out of context.
2. It was a poor example he gave.
Sen. Wagner began by asking which of the students were registered to vote. He went on to explain why it is important.
To do that, he compared a car salesman preferring to speak to someone with money and a politician preferring to speak with someone who is registered to vote.
When I heard him explain it this way, I feared it would be misunderstood, especially since he spoke in first-person, describing himself as the car salesman and then as the politician.
However, if one was there and listened closely, as I assume the writer did (and as I did), what Frank was trying to say eventually became clear.
Printing some of the quotes, taken out of context, is extremely unfair. The senator's awkward example is no excuse for this irresponsible and misleading piece.
