Sansom shouldn't have missed this class

21

November

The seminar was titled "How Not to Get in Trouble as a Legislator."

The trouble is, it was put on by House Democrats, so the one person who should have been there wasn't: Rep. Ray Sansom of Destin, Republican speaker of the Florida House.

Of course, Republicans held a similar discussion when they gathered this week to prepare for a new legislative year.

No, Sansom is not in trouble in the literal sense. But the first week of his two-year term as speaker did not produce headlines for the scrapbook. (Rest of Steve Bousquet's column is here.)
