Ethics reform, schmethics reform

Posted By on Mon, Dec 1, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Just now seeing DeMillo's weekend column, on the general lack of specifics and/or enthusiasm for improved ethics regulation of the Arkansas legislature.

Next subject. Make lobbyists file meaningful reports on expenditures? Embarrass legislators by putting their free wining and dining on the web? End freebies? Not gonna happen.

Again: If this petty bribery doesn't pay dividends, why do lobbyists and legislators fight so hard to preserve it? Those who don't like it are too chicken to do anything about it, for fear of alienating those who do. On runs the sewer.
