According to The Wichita Eagle:
“My name has been besmirched.” — Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, in
Besmirched after an anonymous accusation? What he really means is ‘who ratted me out.’ Tiahrt has no ethics. He skirts the election finance and lobbying laws to make a bundle off his office. He’s in it for himself. What is the probability that he’s innocent? I would guess slim to none. There’s no way to besmirch a politician as corrupted as Tiahrt is.
