COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of October 14, 2016

Stories from the week of October 14, 2016

Invitations help: I was among those invited to meet the Attorney General of South Carolina after the regular Grover Norquist Wednesday meeting. I maintained my seat at the big table, enjoying my lunch, when Grover sat next to me. Alan Wilson the AG made a brief statement and opened the floor to Q & A.

I was the first called upon. “Mr AG. The war on drugs has been the most destructive, dysfunctional and immoral, IMMORAL, policy since slavery and Jim Crow. If you were the King of South Carolina for life, what would you do with these illegal drugs?”

I am not allowed to tell you his answer, simply I can report I was impressed with his response.
Grover was called upon, right after me. His question was a follow-up to my war on drugs theme.
Having Grover Norquist follow my lead = priceless….and that is why COP pays me the big bucks….small steps.

NOTE: Since Congress went home for the election, there is precious little to do in DC…so I am traveling again.
