Newspapers: Snowe to Go
I bought seven different newspapers this AM, and all seven of them make it sound like House Speaker Edwin Snowe is a goner. Even a majority of his stalwarts have jumped ship and signed a bill to oust him.
At issue are these allegations:
1. He told the Taiwanese that Liberia would recognize Taiwan, without the President's permission. [China is THE major player in Liberia now.]
2. He brought a couple of unsavory characters with him on a government junket, called them government employees, and then lied about it.
3. He had a hand in stealing more than a million dollars from the petroleum company he worked for until last year.
Just the fact that the first two are not being ignored as business-as-usual I think says a lot about how far this government has come since the elections.
Congress goes back to work on Monday.
