We need a new law. This law should apply to any elected or appointed position.
- Make it illegal to work in government if you’ve ever been caught cheating at taxes, or if you’ve ever committed a felony of any sort.
- It should also cause immediate loss of your position in the government, if you are convicted while in office.
- And it should require that penalties for such crimes assessed be identical to what would be assessed against an ordinary citizen.
You’d think we would already have such a law, but – oh, wait! – our congress-critters would have to pass it, wouldn’t they? Not likely that’s going to happen! Snort.
Besides, half of them would be out of a job if such a law was passed. Not a bad thing, now that I think about it.
It’s pretty bad when the phrase ‘organized crime’ makes you think of Washington…
