24-Hour Dorman: Capitol offenses
Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman
The curious case of Marshall Clemons, the Cedar Rapids custodian/local union leader who was arrested last week at the Statehouse and charged with trying to steal money from lobbyists' purses, proves yet again that the Capitol is no place to try anything funny. And by funny I mean illegal activity. Although it's worth mentioning here that Clemons is innocent until proven guilty. Anyone who has spent much time at our gilded Capitol knows almost nothing happens without someone seeing or hearing it. The place is full of very nosy people paid to watch stuff closely, and not only the official proceedings, but also all the unofficial happenings. Who's doing what? Who's talking to whom? What's that smell coming from the cafeteria?
