Quote of the Week: "I'm really doing the thing the state asks us to do."

"I'm really doing the thing the state asks us to do. It is a fair question. My response as a voter would be, it's really why you've got to elect the right people, because there's no way in those forms that you can ever really trace what somebody owns."
