Pamela Gorman, State Senator: Keep Your Cameras Away From My Stinkin' Restroom Breaks


Our esteemed state lawmakers should not be fodder for over-eager journalists who want to follow them around as if the Legislature was a reality show, says Pamela Gorman (pictured), a Republican state senator from Anthem.

In an East Valley Tribune article by Howard Fischer about the senate's upcoming media kick-out, Gorman pulls out a gritty witicism while defending the "practice" of chatting with other Republican lawmakers away from the snoops: 

"Are you suggesting that this is a reality show and there should be a camera on my back at all times?" Gorman said. "There are times I have conversations one-on-one with a member. Do you want to go to lunch with me? Do you want to go to the bathroom with me? I don't know where you want to go."

That's right: You'll never get to find out whether Pam's a crusher or a folder.
