"Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.'' This line from Mark Twain came to my mind when I read about former Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox so brazenly taking $52,500 in bribes from a Providence restaurant so that it could get a liquor license and using $108,000 in campaign money for personal use. How brazen and how banal.
The name of the restaurant? The Shark Sushi Bar & Grille!
