Rules for the Elect, #1
The first lesson that elected, male representatives up and down the food chain need to learn is this:
The penis stays in the pants unless you are with your doctor, significant other, or playing solitaire. If you know what I mean.
Other people don’t want to see your penis, no matter how impressive it (or your job title or your ego) may be.
Keep the penis in the pants.
I put this one first on the list because it seems to pop up fairly often. You’d think that this rule would be in some budding politician’s
“Intro to Ruling the Rubes” “Your First Day on the Tax n’ Spend Trail” handbook, but it seems to have been omitted in all the pertinent literature.
Since I continue to want our elected
overlords public servants to be successful and happy, I offer this up as my own public service. Sadly, it seems to have come up a little bit late for House Assistant Majority Leader Michael Garcia (D-Aurora).
House Assistant Majority Leader Michael Garcia is resigning as a state representative, effective immediately.
Our partners at the Denver Post have reported that Rep. Garcia (D-Aurora) was accused by a lobbyist of exposing himself and making lewd comments to her as they played pool and drank in a bar.
The Post also reports that the incident was reported to House Speaker Andrew Romanoff who said he could not comment on the matter.
Of course, his first mistake might have been trusting a lobbyist.
Even with this highly public advice, my guess is that politicians will continue to fall into the same trap of believing that their penises are far more desirable than rational thought might lead the rest of us to believe. Kind of like Hillary’s thoughts about the desirability of the Federal government mandating universal pre-k.
