3/29: Ethics-report debate

Moderated by Rick Badie

If a teen earned this grade, he’d probably lose cellphone and iPod privileges. Might get grounded, too.

Georgia received an F because it’s a high-risk state for government corruption, according to an investigation by the Center for Public Integrity.

Today, a former ethics enforcer questions the study’s methodology while an ethics-reform proponent says Georgia deserved the grade.

This is so depressing it is difficult to really frame a rational thought. As long as we have the “fox in charge of the henhouse” it is difficult to imagine that there will ever be any substantive ethics reform. The only answer is for the voters to make this a major issue and elect candidates who will commit ahead of time to specific changes. However, based on the lack of participation of most Georgia Citizens I fear we are destined for more of the same.

The entire state house was given the green light to rob us blind when the electorate placed one of the most corrupt politicians to ever serve in Washington in charge of the state’s treasury.
