Wamp Visits Capitol, Messes with Ramsey

A happy Zach Wamp strolled through the halls of the Capitol today just before the start of the special legislative session and took the opportunity to slap his political rival, Ron Ramsey, on a sore subject. At the bang of the gavel, which I just heard on my computer's earphones, Ramsey is banned by state law from raising money for his campaign for governor until the session ends. Wamp is under no such constraints, and this makes the congressman very happy. Wamp told Action Andy Sher the legislature shouldn't change the law to let Ramsey shake down lobbyists for campaign cash this session:
"I would think any logical analysis would say that if this needs to be changed it would be effective in the next election cycle, not this existing election cycle, the current election cycle. That would make no sense to change it in the middle of the cycle given the fact that everybody knew the rules going in."
