Statue of Unliberty Play

Late one Friday evening, as the offices of the governor and everybody was closing down, Bill Ritter signed an unannounced executive order effectively unionizing every state employee.

Though Ritter may be more moderate than most Democrats, and appears to be a nice guy, this move was an atrocious breach of executive privileges and smelled fishy.

The issue of public employees being forced into unions is hot enough as it is, but to pass a law circumventing the legislature and without allowing debate by opposition, though technically legal, is very immoral. Even other Democrats and the left leaning Denver Post were disgusted by the move. If this was such a good idea, why wouldn't Ritter put it up to his Democratically controlled congress?

The move completely caught Republicans off guard (as was its intent). It was low and unprofessional. I would expect more from our elected officials.

"Benjamin Hummel possesses the single most important characteristic required of an editorial cartoonist: a passion for the issues. His point of view is never in doubt. When you add a sense of humor, a feel for irony and fine-tuned art skills, you have here a cartoonist worth your attention."

--Mike Keefe, Denver Post Cartoonist

"Finally, an editorial cartoonist who leans right, lives his faith, sees the funny side of politics, and can draw. Conservatives are going to like Ben's pen."
