Dear Mr. Shortridge:

I feel a bit like I’m being made out to be a scapegoat. And so, you know, I guess I would like to say that, you know, if any mistakes were made they were inadvertent. And quite frankly being a full-time employee of the company I worked for, the company I owned, and raising money for the Party I wasn’t there every day all day watching every single thing that came through, okay?

I feel as though that I haven’t done anything wrong and in fact the only regret that I have is I wish that maybe I should have consulted different attorneys, made sure the recount stuff was better handled. But, there was no attempt to deceive, no attempt to, you know, as I said if the lawyers had said do it a different way we would have done it a different way.

Again I don’t want to throw anybody under the bus, but a lot of this stuff was a surprise to me. I thought things had been taken care of or handled. I just expected it when I said to get it taken care of it would be taken care of.

I don’t have a lot of regrets about it. We’re whatever, a million bucks in debt, versus billions of dollars in tax increases. I’d trade that any day of the week.


Thanks for your feedback. If we like what you have to say, it may appear in a future post of reader reactions.
