If you have read this blog you know one of my pet peeves was the money the state collected from tobacco retailers in violation of a court order and now their intransigence in returning the overcharges....In my case this was $1400 which I know is lot a lot of money to many, but it would be nice to have back.
I wrote a draft of a letter to the local assistant attorney general protesting the state's lawless behavior which would not be tolerated if done by a private sector business.
I haven't sent the letter to Ms.Nelson as I don't really want to taunt the bear and have them "launch a probe" or decide I need an audit of my own.
As the former assistant AG would say, fighting the state is like Sisyphus pushing the rock up the hill.
The State had sent a letter almost two months ago pledging to repay the illicit collections. Maybe I should be patient, as I don't need Eric Schneiderman mad at me....
But the letter is written and it felt good doing it.
