Democrats at CasablancaPa give us some well-sourced analysis about John Rafferty, Mike Long, Todd Nyquist, Bonusgate, Turnpike Pay to Play http://casablancapa.blogspot.com/search?q=rafferty
CasablancaPa informs: http://casablancapa.blogspot.com/2011/12/maybe-rafferty-will-give-us-bonus-too.html FTA Long received more legislative bonus money than any other staffer of either party. (Tribune Review 2/1/07) Not only did he perform an incredible amount of campaign work over the years, he was renowned solely for his political skills. As a senior staffer who received enormous bonuses and with a long history of campaign work, Long is one of the suspects the state wide grand jury is still examining.
Furthermore, one of the “associates” in Long’s operation is Megan Crompton, the wife of Drew Crompton. Mr. Crompton is the poster boy for the political bonuses doled out in 2006 by the Senate GOP caucus after receiving a $20,000 taxpayer-funded bonus for working four months on the Lynn Swann for Governor campaign in 2006.
