Lance Cargill Resigns

Former Speaker of the House Lance Cargill

Lance Cargill has stepped down as the Speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. Lance has suffered a series of bad publicity news over his failure to pay property taxes on time.

Every time a new bunch takes over a government, they always promise to bring a reform in the way that government is done. However, Morality has no party registration. Humans are the same despite lables and affiliations. If we wonder why politicians are corrupt, it is because they are just as we are. As St. Paul said, "We hold the treasure of our soul in cracked pots." (My translation of II Corinthians 4:7)
