Follow the Money.
How many times have you heard
"Follow the money" when
people are talking about our political system? We hear it quite
often and it is a direct reference to the growing unholy influence
that special interests have today.
As many watch the 2008 elections unfolding, the impact of Big
Money is so obvious. On Presidential candidates the media focuses
more on how much money they can raise than their positions on issues.
But the System is Broken on more than just the Presidential
elections. Earlier this year we watched with dismay as Mississippi
US Senator Trent Lott - ignored the people of Mississippi - and
strongly supported the Kennedy-Chambliss-Isakson Amnesty bill.
What would make a US Senator ignore the people who he has taken
an Oath of office to represent?
Our guess was money. Not direct payments in the forms of bribes,
but special favors owed. So we decided to track Senator Lott and see
what he did in the future.
Last week we ran across the following Southern Daily News report
on none other than US Senator Trent Lott.
