Rep Josephs taking well deserved hit in the press

This article in today’s Inquirer discusses how she hasn’t passed a number of reform bills.  It includes the redistricting reform of this spring. She defends herself with “if it’s not right it shouldn’t be done” hoping that the public will believe her definition of “right”. She seems to not only have lost respect, which is a shame, but lost two other very critical items:

1. She has lost a chance to make an issue of true reform for this state. And now it looks like with “Bonusgate” the Democrats gamble that they would control the 2010 redistricting may fail. They will deservedly suffer from an even worse redistricting from the Republicans in 2010 if they do lose the House this fall.

2. She lost the chance to make a “defining moment” for herself. A chance to stand up and be counted not just as a Legislator but as a true Representative of the people. She had a chance to fight “the good fight” and to be hero to all of us so desperate to witness a display of integrity in our politicians. Is is sad that she couldn’t see what could have been done. She lacked vision.

Yes, we will wait another ten years. Perhaps then we will find a few representatives that kept their ideals intact when they took their oaths.
