What an utter joke! First of all, ethics and politics in Arkansas have become oxymorons. There are none. And, when violated, its a whole $50.00-$100.00. Meanwhile, while our governor and current legislature sat quietly by and allowed it, millions have been stolen from we the people. And now, our governor and his nephew (the other one, not the one implicated in taking the most bribe money yet) think we are so stupid we believe another set of rules will fix things. They are the stupid ones if they think we are buying into their charade. The only way to eradicate the crooks in our legislature is with our votes. And, since it is apparent those there cannot be trusted, I think we need citizen oversight. Who knows if future politicians will be any more trustworthy than the current ones. I remember hearing one legislator say that they were elected to take care of our money and the citizens needed no further input. That might work if the elected officials were honest in their fiduciary responsibilities, but, clearly they are not. Its our money let's have someone watching it.
