My Colorado voting guide: No on Amendment 41 – Standards of Conduct in Government

By | November 2, 2006

Amendment 41 is a mess. Theoretically, it’s supposed to stop government officials from receiving money/gifts from special interests, and create an ethics board for oversight. But the language of the proposed amendment is so vague that it is open for multiple interpretations. And the supposedly objective ethics board can be made up of other government officials, who would probably not be as objective as expected.

I appreciate the ideals and efforts behind this, but it gets a NO! for poor implementation.
