Appearances count

From Arkansas Business: A circuit judge says there was an appearance of impropriety in the fact that then-Insurance Commissioner Julie Benafield Bowman decided an important insurance case in favor of an insurance company then later went to work for the insurance company.

She has said she decided the case without consideration for her future need to be seeking a new job because of a change in gubernatorial administration. The insurance company undoubtedly would have hired her on experience alone, regardless of how she had ruled.

You think?
