Matter of 'personal gain'

How pathetically ironic that Rep. George Radanovich is questioning TJ Cox's business acumen when his failed winery left investors with worthless stock, and he ended up with the winery's primary asset. As documented by The Bee on July 11, 2004, he was even promised a $250,000 bailout by one of his special interests if he "would commit to remain in Congress for at least five more years."

Between his campaign being financed by well-heeled political action committees, and personal business incentives such as these, I hope voters understand clearly that Rep. Radanovich's desire to remain in office has more to do with his personal gain than any gain for his constituents.
