That may be true, my point was that people like Adelson did not have as much influence as I feared.

The place that We voted cameras and phones were not permitted in there.

ROFL, we all know Roush didn't. A $15,000 survey, $80,000 in illegal contribution to the bridge special interest, even the $100,000 play ground equipment in Millbrook (where I live) that is just a block away from the playground we put in back in 2008! So much waste and abuse of city funds and resources it's no wonder Tom won.

LOL Ryan! Not to mention the trillions in redistributed tax dollars to pay for handouts in exchange for votes of course.

No cameras and phones... but no ID, no problem!
