    Lobbyists wrote the legislation because they are all more experienced in the ways of the legislature than the elected officials who are term-limited out.

    Just because the rest of the state wanted to vote out Willie Brown...

    •  Term limits work both ways. The lobbyists wrote (0+ / 0-)

      the bills for those who weren't termed out as well.  I don't think term limits make a difference in that respect.  All they really do is put the same politicians in a game of musical chairs with all the different offices they can run for.  willie Brown wasn't the only one people wanted to get rid of.

      US Senators don't have term limits and look at how the lobbyists write their bills.  It's all that soft money they feel that they have to have.
