Athene relays a story from Stateline about a teenager trying to complete his late grandmother's collection of state capitol postcards. Seems the kid sent handwritten letters to the governors in each of the missing 19 states asking for the postcards and including a dollar and a stamp.
While only 12 responded initially - all 7 of the responsive Democrats returned the kid's dollar (and most the stamp, too) but 4 of the 5 Republicans kept the buck and the stamp.
And WE'RE the party taking unneeded money from citizens? Sheesh.
Hats off to Athene's Barbour, too, for thinking FPPC-ically when she hopes the postcards and stamps were covered by the D-Governors' campaign accounts and not state funds. Way to stay diligent!
