Lobby-Ho!* The rallying cry for the California legislature brought to us by that bastion of family values Assemblymember Mike Duvall-R, District 72. If you haven't all ready, you can read and hear the scummy details in the OC Weekly article by R. Scott Moxley here. Not only was he crude in describing his exploits to his assembly next-door neighbor Mr. "Let's Raise Taxes Even Though I Said I Wouldn't" Jeff Miller, he is Vice Chair of the Utilities and Commerce Committee and his dripping lobby-ho* reportedly works for Sempra Energy! He even had the guts to say his resignation was for telling unsuitable stories, and not because he was cheating on his wife with a lobbyist or two.

You know this is just the tip of the iceberg with these legislators. You know he is not the only one doing this. Bad enough they have to debase themselves, their families, their state and their office, they are doing it with our tax dollars. What better time to push for a part-time legislature as Citizens for California Reform are doing. CCR is committed to advancing more limited and transparent government.

So get involved, people. Get your friends and relatives involved. Get those petitions going. We've been complacent way too long.
