    The Office of Congressional Ethics was established to help incumbents discourage outsiders from trying to run for elected office. Even people with little financial wealth are treated like criminals and forced to disclose their meager finances, at penalty of law. Try running for Congress and see how much time you must spend complying with the unconstitutional bureaucracy and filing FEC reports. Of course, the incumbent politicians aren’t worried about this because they get all the free help they might need anyway. This has no more to do with ethics than Obamacare has to do with health. It is all a part of the Establishment’s grab for more power, and the loss of liberty by individuals. You can thank Nixon and the Democrats for this abomination.

      You captured the Republican position pretty well there, Al: “The poor dears at the top of the power pyramid, as a condition of their office they are required to be transparent about conflicts of interest. We should fix that.”

      GOP: pity parties for the people in power and a golden shower for the rest of us.
