Today's Irony: “Honesty” and Representative Scott Drury

Dear Representative Drury:

“Honesty” and Scott Drury create quite an irony together. Drury and others like him chose not to honor their oath of office in December, 2013 when they voted “Yes” to break a constitutional contract (SB 1) with public employees. Breaking a promise is theft of “certainty” and “credibility”; an antonym for the word “truthful” is dishonest.

Today Drury writes: 

“…Illinois has a credibility problem.  We are working to fix that. In 2011, Illinois made a promise that the tax increase would be temporary… Illinois should be held to that promise to build credibility.  Without credibility, Illinois cannot provide certainty…

“In the words of the late broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow: "To be persuasive, we must be believable; to be believable, we must be credible; to be credible, we must be truthful."  Illinois will find that it can more easily persuade the public of the necessity to take action when it is believable, credible and truthful. 

“As always, thank you for the privilege of allowing me to represent you.”   


Tell Drury what you think about his credibility and honesty (I just did):

    Dear Representative Drury,

    I do not find your stated argument credible. You voted to break promises related to public employee pensions, despite your opinion that SB1 was likely unconstitutional. In every case, you are clearly supporting corporate/monied interests to the neglect of average Illinois citizens.
