Does he wear a crown and an ermine cape while cruising in his newest Ferrari? Mr. Flash is a big reason why a growing percentage of Americans don't vote. And why those who did voted for Proposition 140.

Mr. Style postures and poses as the reformer while protecting the trial lawyers' windfall, his source of campaign funds, and leaving the taxpayers to pick up the ever-bloated tab.
