It is an old, old story.
A politician or wannabe politician announces he is a staunch supporter of term limits in general, as he knows the lion’s share of voters are. But he will quibble about some detail that allows him to be a opponent of any specific term limit proposal.
Thus, the politician can nod to his pro-term limits constituents and simultaneously wink at the anti-term limits lobbyists.
The latest exhibit in this dusty pantheon is former federal prosecutor Ken Sukhia who is running in the Republican primary for Florida’s 2nd Congressional district.
Here is Sukhia, captured on YouTube, dissembling before a would-be constituent.
Kudos to the voter who asked him the question about term limits. Let’s keep popping the question to candidates at public meetings — and posting the results. We need to hold these candidates accountable.
