    what did Ben spend on his other business

  3. wondering Says:

    It appears honesty and integrity are lacking from Ben who is seeking an office that upholds these two values. He feels like he is being attacked; well when you start your campaign negatively and illustrating with juvenile cartoons, what did he anticipate would happen? Remove the plank from your eye before you try to remove the dust out of your neighbors.
