Cleaning up the lobby sewer

Posted By on Fri, Jan 19, 2007 at 6:39 AM

The U.S. Senate voted for ethics reform last night, including a ban on travel, gifts and meals provided by lobbyists.

Why can't we do this in Arkansas, where a very little buys so much? Because Arkansas lawmakers -- at least many of them -- don't believe in picking up their own checks. And lobbyists know dividends are huge relative to expense.
