OC Register's Steven Greenhut To Take On Sacramento
|A headache for liberals soon arrives in Sacramento|
"My column will still run fairly regularly in the Register, but with a Sacto focus," said Greenhut. "I'm leaving on great terms. It's just time for a new challenge and state government desperately needs some additional attention."
During his career as a regular columnist at the Reg, Greenhut--a solid libertarian voice--has angered police, liberals, Democrats, bureaucrats, union leaders and Republicans with stances that at the core deride increasing government power and, in his view, the shameless looting of public treasuries by special interest groups.
Did I say police officers, who now get to retire at the spry age of 50 and collect their salaries for the rest of their lives, despise him for strenuously opposing the massive cost to taxpayers?
He also once famously pissed off Bill O'Reilly of Fox News by challenging the necessity of George W. Bush's Iraq War.
Last year, he mocked Republican obsession with blocking gay marriage.
Greenhut said he will launch his project on October 5.
