Why One Party Rule Is Bad

When one party controls an entity, say a county government, it breeds corruption and a feeling that they are above the law. The arrest of RRISD school board vice president Steven Copenhaver helps prove this point. Mr. Copenhaver has given $2,500 to Congressman John Carter over the last 3 years. The fact that no other contributions show up for Mr. Copenhaver would lead one to believe that he is a Republican. Mr. Copenhaver is a defense attorney. Don't Republicans, like John Carter, hate defense attorneys? Why is John Carter taking money from a hated defense attorney? Well I guess if it's a Republican defense attorney it's not as bad!

For all the sordid details of this case, mugshot and arrest warrant, you can go here. Be warned, what Mr. Copenhaver was asking for is spelled out in the arrest warrant.
