Acelor Mittal gives Legislators 100 vehicles
Thanks a lot Acelor Mittal. The Legislature receives the gift and the people get stiffed.
Then again the audacity of our Legislators is astounding, testing the vehicles by taking a rides in "their" brand new Mitsubishi pickups in the compound of the Capital building. As far as we can tell, not one of our lawmakers turned the gift back. Have they no shame at all.
The acceptance of the vehicles by the lawmakers has raised concerns in the public given the direct source of the donation, Acelor Mittal. Some legislative analysts believe the donation by Acelor Mittal is an indirect form of inducement for future help to the Company.
The credibility gap is growing and the faint whisper of "growth without development" is growing louder.
The people deserve better.
