Internet cafe drama stirs debate on campaign contributions and access to legislators

There are 2 comments on the story from May 4, 2013, titled Internet cafe drama stirs debate on campaign contributions and access to legislators. In it, reports that:

Senate President Keith Faber acknowledges campaign contributions may help some gain access to legislators, but says that the money "doesn't drive decisions." Intrigue surrounding legislation that would all but ban Internet cafes in Ohio could easily have given voters the impression that the key to getting a legislator's attention is an open wallet.

What a bunch of hypocrites ! Politicians have taken money from EVERY lobbying group in the US. Why is this any different? Has Dewine ever taken money from any lobbyists? Has Dan Gilbert spread any money around? What a joke!

Why don't they return ALL the lobby money they have received? How much did Gilbert spread around for his casino? MILLIONS! Why don't the politicians leave these businesses alone and TAX them. 500 cafes, 500 rents 2500 jobs ! Wake up morons!
