If the issue with Drew Springer is big money influence, where is the wisdom in thinking the solution is big money influence?
Drew Springer has been accused of wrong-doing because he worked for a wealthy lobbying firm. The Springer family business is a financial services business. His customers are successful individuals and businesses. Should we be surprised to learn that some of his customers may have employed lobbyists? I would be surprised if they did not!
I take no position for, nor against Drew Springer.
I have heard suspicion driven charges against him, that he may be one of many who have been influenced by Austin’s big money politics.
An issue that is even more difficult to see beyond is his judgment; judgment that may have fortified the perception of becoming entangled by the influence of lobbyist money while performing official duties.
