Barbour Unleashes on Stringer re: Guv’s Jet
The partisan fight to sell the governor’s jet is picking up steam with House Democrats for the second time in the past month. Odds are some bill will pass the House and get killed in the Senate. Nothing new there.
One of the men who has a direct hand in this, naturally, is the House Appropriations Chairman Johnny Stringer (D-Montrose), a supporter of selling the jet. And on Wednesday Haley Barbour did not hold anything back when he issued this statement directed at Stringer: “I’ve cut the governor’s office by 8.7 percent. When Johnny Stringer cuts the House budget by that much, come back and talk to me.”
