Integrity Versus Hypocrisy

Dear Source:
Dr. Lynn Spampinato brought ethics and integrity with her to this territory, which apparently threw our senators into shock.
Our senators live in darkness, apparently immune from Sunshine Laws, but ask Dr. Spampinato to divulge information which is secreted by contractual law. How hypocritical is that?
All we ask is that our kids get a fair shot at life, and education is that doorstep. For senators to subterfuge efforts for whatever reason is beyond unconscionable. That does not portray Dr. Stampinato in a negative image, but it speaks volumes for our senators.
We keep sending our children off-island to get an education, but complain when our elected Governor nominates an off-islander to be Commissioner of Education? Is this making any sense to anyone?
Certainly our senators are not stupid, but I can't figure out why they keep acting like they are. Maybe it's the second generation of uneducation coming back to bite them.
