Gas Gate may be a hot button issue lately here in Da Hood but just search the internet for a bit and you’ll find that many towns across America have experienced their own version of Gas Gate: Where public officials have decided to help themselves to public gas.
Feeling that because they are doing city business at work that they are somehow deserving of a taxpayer ride to and from work.
- Just ask your boss to pay for your ride to work, I dare you!
Or that because they can’t even go to the supermarket for milk without being harassed by citizens complaining about one thing or another, that ride too should be billed to the taxpayers, and God forbid a citizen asks them a question at Kmart, that may entitle them to a Big Screen TV!
The major difference that we found between other towns across the country, and Da Hood, is that even in the small South Carolina town where the movie Forest Gump was filmed, when Gas Gate struck the town, law enforcement responded.
- Varnville Mayor Suspended, Neighbors React
- Executive Order 20 2011 05
- SC mayor arrested for stealing gas
- Varnville mayor indicted
- Varnville has a new mayor
- Forrest Gump filmed in Varnville's town square
- Now I know I’m asking for way too much!
Thinking that any public official should be held accountable, pay their own way, or at the very least, pay us back for stealing gas on the weekend in their undershirts, but that’s just me.
