Committeeman Cooper:

"...So let me get this straight. Your questioning the four hundred and some dollars for a suit for one Chris Cringle, and your not allowing questioning of thousands of dollars ($616,000.) being paid to Churchill Associates. Is that what I am to undertand? (Silence in the room) I would like an answer on that".

Lawrence Mumbles:

"You can understand what you want to understand".

Committeeman Cooper:

"For the record, someone is questioning $453. for a costume, and yet by a 5-4 majority we can not question or even look at thousands of dollars ($616,000.) in payments to Churchill Associates. Does that sound right by anyone? Am I hearing that right?"
