The Springfield News-Leader editorializes today that the system under which state license fee offices are awarded is broken and needs to be fixed.
Charges have been flying back and forth between the parties since Governor Blunt took office and began awarding license fee offices to various campaign contributors. Republicans noted, rightly, that this was nothing new and had been done in the past by Democratic administrations. Democrats say Blunt and his political allies have taken a bad system and made it worse.
It really doesn't matter who is at fault; changes need to be made.
