I Like Political Reform

I have been assigned to another of Senator Aak Ask press conferences. Some days you just whish you could be being shot at by droids and Ewoks. *sigh*


*Senator Aak Ask approaches the podium*

Senator Ask Ask
Senator Aak Ask

I have called this press conference today to discuss ethics and corruption reform in the Galactic Senate. As many of you know I have been a long time supporter of cleaning up the ethics problems in the Senate, and as such I have introduced ….”

A report from the Coruscant News Network (CNN) shouts out a question. “Senator, how can you say you have been a long time supporter of ethics reform when you have voted against every single reform measure in the past 20 years and have been under investigation at least 6 times for abuse of the budget program?

Senator Aak Ask looks annoyed, but responds to the question. “I am glad you brought up the subject of hiding thins n the Senate Budget. Those items, known as Earmarks, have caused a lot of problems …

For the Senators!” one reporter say to raucous laughter.

The Senator look more annoyed, but continues, “The Earmarks have caused many problems when they have been exposed to the public, I have proposed in my legislation to get rid of Earmarks, once and for all.”

The Reporter from the Faux News Networks shots a quick startled questions to the Senator, “Do you mean to say that the Galactic Senate will no longer earmark funds, hidden in large budget bills, that give money to their family, friends and political supporters?”

Goodness no man, My legislation is getting rid of the word Earmark and not give a name to what we do and work to hide it better. If you don’t know what we are doing, then you can’t whine and bitch about it. Any further questions?” Aak Ask smiled at the reporters.

The Press corps just stared back with stunned looks on their faces.

Well then, we’ll call it a day then” said the Senator as he left the dais.

That senator is no good. I'll have to remember to be not like him when I'm elected President of the United States.

Whoa, I would definately be more involved in politics if more senators had such a colorful vocabulary!

Now I see why Sidious did away with the Senate -- they were no good anyway...why let all that corruption be spread through that many people when you could hoard it all for yourself.

I'm afraid politicians are like that in my galaxy as well. There's nothing we can do but grin and bear it.

I think the Senator may have an image problem.

I am Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots and on Cybertron, we do not have to worry about unethical senators causing problems, just Decepticons.
