It be a real puzzler to me, for sure!
When politicians have to vote on some matter that affects their friends, or a company or an organization that they belong to, they step aside and don’t participate. They say they have a conflict of interest.
But when they votes themselves a salary increase, or vote themselves some nice benefits, then all that conflict of interest stuff just up and disappears. It goes poof just like it never existed at all.
That be a strange thing. That be a real head-scratcher that be!
What do you think?
‘Til next time.
