What’s Wrong With Our Governors?

In 2006, Eliot Spitzer was elected governor of New York but within three years had to leave due to a sex scandal. He was succeeded by Lt. Governor David Patterson who resigned this week due to a sex scandal involving his driver who somehow had worked up to chief aide to the governor and advisor on political issues. The governor of South Carolina SHOULD have resigned due to a sex scandal, but refused just ass his wife and children walked out the door. The governor of Illinois resigned due to a host of improprieties and most probably will soon join another ex-governor who is in jail. Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, had better things to do than run a state–make money, that is. The list goes on and on and on. Former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, is not being blasted by his former supporters because he granted a clemency release to a man who wound up murdering someone.

As these events unfold, the Tea Party is wandering the nation denouncing the Federal government and urging that we return power to the states! Is there something wrong with this argument?
