Re: “Legislative ethics: If lawmakers won't, the people must

Well Sound Policy - that would be unconstitutional - but even if it wasn't, it would not be . . . sound policy. Not everyone has a daily agenda which consists solely of sipping lattes somewhere in Hillcrest a few minutes from the Capitol. Most of the folks in Arkansas, believe it or not, don't even live in Little Rock and have things called jobs. The Supreme Court has very explicitly protected the rights of such folks, like members of unions, to hire people to advocate on their behalf. I think that is probably what the framers had in mind since they struggled to converse with their government in far flung London despite the fact they had hired the able Benjamin Franklin to lobby for them there.
