The Democracy Campaign issued a report today on the campaign donations received by about a dozen and a half legislators who supported legislation to return control of the state Department of Natural Resources to a citizen board but then flip-flopped on the issue and opposed overriding the governor’s veto of the bill.

Politicians robotically insist that campaign contributions do not influence their position on issues and claim that any appearance otherwise is purely coincidental. Well, then let’s just say the findings in today's report represent one whopping big coincidence.
