O'Connor: The Big Dipper

John Hanna, AP: "A senator who wants to be Kansas' top election official was fined $5,000 Thursday, the second time in less than a year that she has been punished for illegally soliciting campaign contributions from lobbyists."

Sen. Kay O'Connor is famous all around the world -- perhaps more famous even than our board of education -- for her opposition to the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1920, which gave women the right to vote.

"I think the 19th Amendment, while it's not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don't approve of," she said in 2001. "The 19th Amendment is around because men weren't doing their jobs, and I think that's sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family."

Perhaps O'Connor should return to the heart of her family and turn all that headache inducing campaign finance stuff over to her husband.
