Levee Bonds

Apparently bi-partisanship only goes so far.  According to this story in the Southern, State Sen. Bill Luechtefeld thinks Rep. Bill Enyart stepped waaaaay out of line by testifying in favor of a bill allowing the issuing of bonds to repair the levee by Grand Tower. Luechtefeld:

“We had a gentleman there taking credit for it who had absolutely nothing to do with it,” Luechtefeld said. “That’s over the top. You see a lot of awful political things that are ugly, but this was right at the top. I’ve been here for a lot of years, and this is as political as I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, that a person would have the nerve to do that just for political reasons. He used it.”

That's quite a condemnation, coming from a guy who served during the Blagoyovich years.
