My company has a code of conduct that I must follow if I want to keep my job. It impinges to a small extent on my ability to earn outside income. I have to decide which is more important to me. No man can serve two masters. People have to make choices in life. Why should legislators be any different?


Let's tell the truth: being a legislator is not a God-given right, contrary to what many seem to think. We as their employers have every right to demand ethical behavior on their behalf. If they can not balance the ethical demands of their two jobs, then they can give up one.
