Let's see. Elected officials do things for people, who are grateful, who then vote for those officials again. It's called "constiuent services," and it's pretty much how politics has always worked. Most politicians, though, are smart enough not to leave a paper trail that might be embarrassing to have to explain. (As the great philosopher Chick McGee has observed in a different context, "Take no pictures, put nothing in writing, deny, deny, deny.") There is also, apparently, a legal line one must not cross in providing such services. I don't think we quite have the hang of this corruption business here in Indiana. Maybe we need to have a seminar conducted by an elected official from Chicago or, say, Louisiana.
