“Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.” ~Barry Goldwater
The RINO of the week is House Representative Richard B. Drisko, Hillsborough District 5. Rep. Drisko’s voting record contains a few of the typical rank and file RINO votes such as votes against HB 125, Lawful commerce in Firearms, CACR 9, HB329 The parental notification bill; and, HB519 the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative repeal.
And while the aforementioned votes above might point toward RINOism in and of themselves, the thing that put Representative over the top for RINO of the Week selection are his communications with constituents regarding SB88 where Drisko used many of Governor Lynch’s talking points and “wild, wild west-type references. That distinction earned him the RINO of the Week award.
Pandering and demagoguing is a sure-fire fast track method to making the RINO-of-the-Week list….Congratulations, Dick!
