Who would oppose such a thing? A REpublican representative named...
"I'm hesitant to pass something when we get into itemizing every potential wrongdoing that a legislator could commit, lest this become a criminal code rather than a code of ethics," Rep. David Lust, R-Rapid City, said.

I'm sorry to say that I know this individual. He's a representative from my district - sorry to say, we're gerrymandered. He was appointed to fill the seat of the dead guy (who was elected after the ballots were finalized). In South Dakota, if you are a republican, you are fireproof -- so much for one-party rule -- get used to it 'Murica.
Out here we have one area code, two timezones and one political party.
I wonder if his sons or daughters will serve as pages ?
