Off to a great start

Bill Haslam’s rocking start and he signs an executive order that eliminates a requirement for the governor and top aides to disclose how much they earn.

Bill was a little upset at the press and the lefties (but I repeat myself) digging into his earnings during the campaign. It’s not as bad as it sounds though:

Under the order signed after Haslam took office on Saturday, the disclosure rules applying to himself and senior administration officials will be the same as those for members of the General Assembly. Those only requires them to list sources of income, but not how much they make.

    He’s just like you and me, only better.

    Like I said over at Silence’s, seems like a perfect opportunity for the General Assembly to introduce some openness into their lives…

    This is just shocking. Does this mean the whole state government is now corrupt??? Seeing that they are hiding everything now not just most everything…

    I find it interesting to note that with all the accusations about hiding and privilege, no one has taken time to note (I also looked over the first page of comments from the link) that he is simply applying rules that the rest of the assembly have, to the top. They all are abiding by the same rules now. Shocking? It seems like a reasonable move to me. Timing might be a bit off, but the concept is sound. Note I am looking at the application of philosophy equally. Isn’t that the idea of the rule of law? Excepting Charlie R. of course, and the cabinet officers, and… oh yes, the dhimmocrats complaining about a Republican applying a similarity of rule.
