Power Brokers & Young Women
The power brokers of Tallahassee get to the important matters for all Floridians. They have named Jamey Turner Miss Rotunda.
"They hire these girls because they're drop-dead gorgeous," says Bob Boyd, 42, a lobbyist who has hired interns to monitor legislation. "Let's face it. Some legislators like beautiful women."
We know all too well how politicians "like beautiful women." There was George H.W. Bush's fondness for Jennifer Fitzgerald. Bill Clinton's cigar moment with Monica Lewinsky, and Robert Bauman meeting a 16 year-old boy in a gay bar and later having sex. On a school night no less. The list goes on and on.
I'm bothered more by Bob Boyd's comment then Turner winning Miss Rotunda. (like there's anything wrong with that.) She is a lovely looking young lady.
Sexist sleaziness knows no partisan boundaries. These men want to hire the kind of young women they never had a shot with in high school and college. Henry Kissinger said, "Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac." There have been many men who have taken Kissenger's words too literally. Never take the word of a man, who lied about bombing Cambodia. at face value.
