Sen. Kirk Watson's grubby little hands.

Ol Sen. Kirk Watson sure knows how to keep himself in the thick of things, to profit off every angle. I told you about how he gets paid $450 an hour with our City of Austin Tax dollars, to do land deals, and all the other conflicts he has a couple weeks ago.

Well, I just found this Statesman report from last week. It looks like Sen. Watson profits off landfill deals as well:

With deep pockets involved and landfill policies at play, the case has attracted some formidable lawyers and lobbyists. The law firm Baker Botts, as well as some high-powered lobbyists, has represented Penske. Kirk Watson, the former Austin mayor and a current state senator, represents the landfill.
Like one giant region-wide landfill, Watson poisons our local government.
