At least they’re allowed to protest in the Legislative Building

Journalist Scott Mooneyham of The Insider zinged state Senator Tom Apodaca in this afternoon’s Insider Afternoon Update:

Sen. Tom Apodaca wasn’t happy after hearing Democrats criticize a new group of bills aimed at limiting municipalities’ powers to annex territory without the permission of the residents who live there. Apodaca, R-Henderson, noted that not once did he hear anyone talk about the rights of the individual. He went on to argue that it is a basic American tenet “for the citizens to control government, not for the government to control citizens.” Apodaca apparently has never been kicked off the second floor of the Legislative Building.

He might have added that, unlike silent progressive protesters, have the tea-partying anti-annexation crusaders.
