    Honestly, Dukes deserved “worst” instead of furniture. And I say that as her constituent. Compare her injuries to Ruth McClendon’s health problems, then look at how they both responded to them. Not showing up and collecting her per diem, after failing to inform voters in the last election she was (apparently) too injured to serve, amounts to legislative malpractice.
