Pat Sajak Wonders Whether Pubilc Employees Should Be Allowed To Vote

Posted by | October 13, 2010 19:07 | Filed under: Top Stories

First, let it be known that Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak is an avowed conservative.  He writes in the National Review that public employees like teachers and other state and federal workers may have too great an interest in the issues and thus maybe they shouldn’t vote. (h/t Mediaite)

…there are occasions in which it’s only fair and correct that a person or group be barred from participating because that party could directly and unevenly benefit from decisions made and policies adopted. So should state workers be able to vote in state elections on matters that would benefit them directly? The same question goes for federal workers in federal elections.

I’m not sure who among us does not have a vested interest in who gets elected.  This theory would also mean that politicians and their families perhaps shouldn’t vote since they certainly would “directly and unevenly benefit” from the results of an election.
