A bill in Oklahoma that would require politicians to pass a drug test as well as welfare recipients passed the House overwhelmingly, and now heads to the State Senate.

It seems logical enough that if politicians want to drug test those who get government assistance, they should get the same treatment, something our readers agreed with in a recent poll. Some will say that “two wrongs don’t make a right” and both instances are a violation of privacy. But the world is not perfect, and at least elected officials in this case would have to follow the same rules for their government checks.

    I lay odds they will not pass this. If they are careful, they will not claim it as an invasion of their privacy. Hopefully, they WILL make this claim, and then their house of cards will come tumbling down.
