I was speaking to a friend of mine late last week, who happens to be a lobbyist. When Austin Scott’s name came up in the conversation, the response was this:
“I absolutely love Austin Scott. He’s a great guy. The only time he ever does what I want him to do is when it’s also the right thing.”
I laughed. Because in a very weird way, that’s probably the best compliment a politician can ever get from a lobbyist.
