    I am not sure where that ad came from.

    It says Wendy Davis for Gov, Inc. Which I guess is her campaign?

    Yeah fuck free flow of money in political campaigns.

    Public funding with pure transparency and no ability to accept donations of cash or in kind. And no PAC's or ads with the mention of the candidates from outside groups starting the January before the election.

    Just caught up on that governor thread

    I won't pretend to have an opinion, but Kid Presentable presented an interesting question right at the end there:

    Can the governor just threaten to take away any agency's funding for whatever reason he feels like if the head of that agency doesn't comply with his resignation demand?

    With the implication being: Regardless of the legality (which is best left to the courts to decide, I think that's apparent), would you be okay with this turn of events?

    Spool I wouldn't want to put words in your mouth, but I imagine your response to this would be 'Under these circumstances (i.e. the abhorrent behavior of the agency head in question), absolutely. It's an extraordinary situation that requires extraordinary action.'

    Oh right, banks.

    Well, is it at least comforting to be holding a physical copy of a thing that totally promises that money will be there once the check clears? :P

    In that case, I'm super comfortable with it. In general, the governor has a line-item veto, so you don't need anything after the "if" in KP's question. He can veto things for whatever reason.

    It's not 'taking away funding', it's 'applying economic sanctions as a domestic policy tool'.

    He's in the government, he's not the owner of a corporation where they can fire employees for any reason, and even those know when to keep their mouth shut when it'd get them in hot water with the government or be a PR nightmare.

    Very true. Let's take it back to that thread, though - my most recent post touches on this, I think - it's my opinion that the governor should have a tool to deal with this sort of issue without having to resort to economic sanctions, if only because he is forced to apply it so imprecisely.

    If a governor can veto things for any reason, this issue would have come up a lot more often in the past.
