Sadly it does have to do with money, not just from Omega. Politicians use votes to trade in a game called politics. Say,, the promise to vote for (or not vote at all) on something that helps Omega. That Rep gets in trade votes to build new roads (money) in his district. (you help me, I help you)If there wasn't money in their pockets from Omega Protein, why do our politicians insist on managing the Menhaden fishery?
