" a plan to give $557,000 to 250 county employees as "hazard pay" for dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. The smallest amounts for recipients were $1,000 to $2,000."

More importantly, the average amount was $2230, so they took 2-11 times the average for themselves. I wonder how the vote came out?

" The smallest amounts for recipients were $1,000 to $2,000."
More importantly, the average amount was $2230.

And if you separate the haves from the have-nots, the average drops to $2,025 per peon.

This is what Fascism looks like. They should all be hung by the neck until dead. If we don't get serious about fighting Fascism it will take over our nation. The only way we can do that is make them afraid to do anything like this because the punishment will not necessarily come from the legitimate authorities because they may be Fascists too. We need to make them afraid of the people. They need to fear us.

Of course not all Republicans are crooks, but it does seem an awful lot of crooks are Republicans.

By way of contrast, our town's community newspaper began a campaign: "Do you really need your federal Covid-relief money for YOUR Covid relief?" It encouraged folks to donate their unneeded Covid-relief money to our town's Help Center for folks who really do need it for Covid relief - - folks who couldn't afford laptops and better internet connections so their kids could go to school virtually, and folks who were suddenly out of work because of Covid and needed help with rent, utilities, fuel, etc.

The campaign raised more than $43,000 for our local Help Center for targeted Covid relief this way.

Pissing down the back of the taxpayers while saying it's raining is SOP for the GOP.

Name one.

And their constituents will, likely, return them to office because blatant corruption beats "libs" being right.

There is no bottom to the POS in the GQP. Ever time I think we're getting toward bottom, the floor opens up and we drop another thousand feet. Don't forget these are just surface investigations, if an actual forensic audit was done, what do you think it would uncover for these commissioners, or in the Gaetz campaign books, or Ms. Lindsay and the Turtle's books? All of these scum are almost as dirty as Dotard, which is why they are clinging to him like COVID clings to your lungs, because he makes them feel normal, like greed being the entire focus of your life is normal and good.
