Legislator reports self

Posted By on Wed, Sep 30, 2009 at 4:54 PM

I'm open to correction, but this might be a first. A state legislator has reported her own ethical miscue.

State Rep. Kathy Webb of Little Rock has been calling reporters to notify them that she'd learned a campaign worker had mistakenly sent a campaign appeal for her re-election on official House stationery. She notified reporters first of the possibility, then called back to confirm that the misstep had, in fact, occurred. She said 30 letters were mailed. She determined the cost of the mailing to be $35 and wrote a check to reimburse the House. She said she'd notified Graham Sloan, director of the state Ethics Commission. She also said she'd be following up with an explanatory letter to the recipients of the letter.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
