Diossa’s grandstanding on Washington Trust is disqualifying.

While I’m catching up on noteworthy items I’ve had on my to-do list, I have to point out that General Treasurer James Diossa’s grandstanding talk about “evaluat[ing] the banking relationship and the state’s business with Washington Trust Company” ought to be disqualifying for him to continue holding his position.  I’ve offered my opinion on the Biden Administration’s shake-down operation for financial institutions, but the point here is broader.  I could see the general treasurer having a position if asked in passing, but Diossa promoted his statement as part of an ideological pile-on.  Somebody in his position should be more respectful of the fact that Rhode Islanders’ livelihoods depend on businesses within the state.

Sadly, politicians’ words matter, and we’ve got a particularly callous and irresponsible bunch in office, these days.

Diossa is but one more example of Rogues Islanders repeatedly electing unqualified individuals!!
