Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Our guest, Nancy Argenziano spent 16 years in state government as a house member, a state senator and a Public Service Commissioner. In an op-ed carried in several state newspapers (including the Tampa Tribune http://www2.tbo.com/news/opinion/2011/jun/16/MEOPINO2-in-florida-the-r-stands-for-fractured-ar-237593/ and The St. Petersburg Times) she wrote about state government: "Make no mistake: This is not about liberals vs. conservatives — or Republicans vs. Democrats; it's about what is right and what is wrong. The legislation and policies of the governor and legislative leadership are wrong.
It's about shouting a warning to Floridians that their elected leaders are selling them down the river, saying one thing but doing another.
In my 16 years in the Florida House, state Senate and Public Service Commission, I have tried to inform people about what was going on in their government and provided the inside scoop that political leaders did not want you to know about. I have been warning for years — and providing examples of our representative government/democracy being sold to the highest contributors, the slush funds, the corruption — that it really is about money.". Former Senator Argenziano joins us live.
