Note: Farther down is a complete break-down of a constituent letter from Rep. Klint Kesto, who voted for the tax proposal and defends his actions having done so. LATP knows that some of you have been waiting for us to post it. It’s here! The Lansing politicians who voted last November to put the May 5 proposal to raise the state sales, gas, and vehicle taxes and activate a plethora of unrelated laws are hard to find these days. Apparently they’re being confronted by more angry voters than they were expecting.
Some have gone into hiding. Others are repenting.
But some of them are sticking to their guns, and in defending the indefensible, saying what they only wish is the truth.
