The Politics of Income
Apparently in Tennessee's Governor's race we're back to using income as a weapon:
How much money someone makes is none of my business or anyone else's. As I said earlier this year in a column defending Bill Haslam from attacks because he refused to release all of his income from Pilot Corporation, someone's personal income or lack thereof does not have anything to do with their qualifications for office. If Mike McWherter wants to release his income as a symbol of personal transparency, good for him-but frankly, it is neither here nor there how much he makes.
