Senate cash grab is just wrong



The state Senate's decision to allow sitting senators to rake in campaign contributions while they're sitting in the coming fiscal session is bad policy. There also should be a no-gift rule before and after for a decent period.

Any slight advantage given possible election challengers by the cessation of sitting senators' rake of lobbyists' money during a legislative session is offset by the enormous advantage enjoyed by incumbent senators. Most pile up contributions unopposed for a slush fund.
