Wading through the voluminous coverage in the aftermath of yesterday's verdict, I just wanted to share with you this tidbit from the editorial in today's State Journal-Register. It pretty much butresses what I've been trying to say. (Although not surprisingly, more succinctly):
The optimist in us makes us want to believe there still could be a good end from Ryan’s means. The specter of a former governor spending his final years in federal prison just might give our current leaders the backbone needed to adopt more serious ethics legislation. Following Comptroller Dan Hynes’ lead in putting a wall between state contracts and political contributions would be a good first step. Allowing the state’s inspectors general to inform the public as to what they are doing is another excellent idea. Sunshine is always a good disinfectant. Both of these measures could be accomplished with stronger leadership from our current governor. (Emphasis added)

Shouldn't any private entity have the right to get involved in the political process.

Maybe the problem is the notion of the public "contracting" with private entities.
