When you are an elected official, it is expected that you will conduct yourself at all times with the utmost of professionalism & maturity. It’s expected. Not everyone always feels the need to deliver. Take Ohio Rep. Wes Retherford for example. After Saturday night’s Butler County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner, Wes was found passed out in his running vehicle in a McDonald’s drive-through with a loaded weapon. Now I bet he planned ahead knowing he’d need the gun to negotiate the price on his McFlurry ’cause the damn kid in there always shorts him on the M&Ms. Arrested, charges pending. Could anyone have seen this coming? It WAS reported that House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger wanted a drinks cart removed from Retherford’s office because it violated House rules. Everyone loves a lil’ foreshadowing.
