Subject: Please don’t make us throw up just to make you stay on the job.

Hello Darryl:

https://www.abbynews.com/news/full-booze-cabinets-raised-plecass-suspicions-on-first-day-as-speaker/

The media tell us that you said you would resign if your revelations about the abuse of public money by government employees did not make us throw up.

Throwing up is awfully unpleasant, and your report is more than enough to make the public ill, so please just stay on the job.  We’re sick enough.

What you have done is so rare and so refreshing.  Of course the public is not shocked.  Entitlement is pervasive among government and the only thing that shocks now is when there are real world consequences for blatant abuse of the trust we wish we could have in the integrity of government employees.

One of my friends could have had a comfortable job and enviable benefits and pensions.  But she blew that when she questioned the expenses of her seniors.  That spelled the beginning of the end of her career.

Thank you Darryl, for the courage you’ve shown to say what most fear to say.  Whatever this costs you,…… you deserve our gratitude, and you sure have mine.
