Gov. Shumlin: Bought and Paid For

Dennis Steele was the only 2010 Vermont gubernatorial candidate who spoke out against the Afghan and Iraqi Wars. Democratic Party winner Peter Shumlin never mentioned them as a candidate. This week Shay Totten writes that ticket sale proceeds from the inaugural parties will benefit the National Guard of Vermont Foundation. While a Governor Steele would have ended immediately the Vermont National Guard deployment, Governor-elect Shumlin and his Democratic corporate movers and shakers support the troops while sampling localvore cheeses and wines.

These corporate big guys and gals - some of whom bankrolled the successful campaign - are now lining up to fund the inaugural bash. That their political bribes are legal doesn't make them less of a bribe.
