Seems like Price, a former district court judge, should have done a little more research. And yes, this bill could benefit Egolf and other plaintiffs' attorneys but as pointed out, people in agriculture get to vote on agriculture bills including appropriations, and so do people in the medical field, the insurance field, liquor licensee holders etc. I am more concerned that Egolf took undue advantage of a pandemic loan but then again look at the megabuck corporations, many of whom, were Individual #1 supporters, who got millions from these programs. This issue, however, is a federal issue and the question is did Egolf improperly apply for and receive the loan--and the PPP program is a loan (yes, it can be forgiven under certain circumstances)--not a grant-- as far as I can tell.

“. . . Egolf's law firm . . . received PPP loans in the first round. He said it got ‘about $240,000’ on April 9, [2020] . . . ‘We applied for [it] because it was available,’ . . . Egolf said. ‘Any business would be foolish not to participate in this program . . .’ ”

Our great leaders don’t like to be disturbed while they gorge themselves, which is why they like keeping fences around the capitols.

Maybe they should add zoo-style signs to their cages: “Please don’t feed the critters — they’re already stuffed.”
