I'm glad to read George Van Til stepped up and admitted his guilt.
I'm sorry he took so long to confess, I'm sorry he cost the taxpayers so much money, and, considering past scandals, I was really sorry so many people voted for him.
That being said, I would remind all the Republicans crying for the judge to turn down the plea agreement that, in the interest of saving the taxpayers the hundreds of thousands of dollars a trial will cost, accepting the thousands of dollars Van Til will pay back is the most economically feasible option.
He has admitted his guilt, he is banned from future public office, he will have to pay back the wages. All that will be accomplished with a trial is perhaps a longer jail sentence - and the taxpayers would then foot the bill for his incarceration as well as the trial.
