Sometimes some good points get lost in the comments. Over on Peach Pundit, they are mostly throwing their hands up in the air wondering what exactly Sonny could have done wrong. Hey, every Governor gets rich without trying, seems to be the consensus opinion.
Well, some comments deserve to be highlighted. One is from a fellow named Fishtail. I have no idea who Fishtail is, but I pass on his comment because he seems to have a pretty good grasp of the issue:
I am encountering a lot of the mentality that says "well everyone does this" and Sonny is rich afterall. But while the rich are often let in on other investments by the other wealthy, they are usually not the governor who can in turn appoint the person that helped them out to a powerful board, take them to Korea with them to negotiate massive deals with the state, and even oversee state boards and authorities that can make decisions one way or the other, which if made the correct way can yield their wealthy friend hundreds of millions of dollars.
