Liquor lobby role leaves a bad taste

IS ANYONE else having a problem getting their mind around the fact that it is apparently OK for state Treasurer Steve Grossman to accept $45,000 from the liquor lobby, which his office oversees, while Chuck Turner, former Boston city councilor, is spending three years behind bars because a Boston businessman, supposedly on the hunt for a liquor license, was paid $30,000 to shove what he claims was $1,000 into Turner's hand in an FBI orchestrated sting?
