Is THIS why Gail did it?

Senator Gail Merhair recently abandoned her independence --in favour of the ruling party, the People's National Movement (PNM)-- to endorse that party's denial of the citizen's right to choose their elected representatives. (See: http://kid5rivers.blogspot.com/2009/07/grotesquely-mutating-gail-merhair_12.html) for the details.)

That was on July 8th, 2009.

Turns out that, before then --the Express hit the streets before midnight of July 7th and the Senate session began at 10 a.m. on July 8th-- she'd written and submitted an op-ed that was published in the Trinidad Express the very day she "Ayed!" with the PNM side in the Senate.

Turns out, too, that her op-ed led off with a question that, now, seems most germane to any discussing regarding why she voted how, then, she did. That question is:
Does corruption negatively impact upon how we do business? (See: http://www.trinidadexpress.com/index.pl/article_business_mag?id=161501610)

Hmm!
