Pat Sajak: Can I buy a W, T, & F, please?

Wheel Of Fortune game show host Pat Sajak doesn’t like conflicts of interest. Not even the guy who rotates his tires will ever get a shot to solve the puzzle. So when writing his opinion on whether or not State workers should be able to vote on things that they have a greater stake in, he says probably not.

Talking Points Memo reports:

Of course we all have a stake in one way or another in most elections, and many of us tend to vote in favor of our own interests. However, if, for example, a ballot initiative appears that might cap the benefits of a certain group of state workers, should those workers be able to vote on the matter? Plainly, their interests as direct recipients of the benefits are far greater than the interests of others whose taxes support such benefits.

So, if that’s the case, then maybe us regular citizens shouldn’t be allowed to vote on the Presidency, because we have a stake in the outcome. What do you think?
