Here is the story: John Kasich has accepted many thousands of dollars from private companies during his time in office, and those companies have reaped millions of dollars in return. Most of us would call that bribery. Most of us also assume that is illegal.

Right on the first, wrong on the second. Some Ohio legislators are introducing a bill that would make it illegal for a sitting governor to accept money from private firms.

So, if they are asking to make something illegal, it must be legal now. In all the nation, Ohio must surely be the only state in which slipping a Guv a hundred grand here and there is OK. No wonder Kasich left Wall Street to take this gig-he can get richer taking bribes than he ever could scamming people on securities and stocks.
