Reminds me of Donald Trump who spent tens of thousands of dollars on his makeup and his hair during his campaign. Still makes me sick to think about his narcissism and he vulgarity. MLG is a saint in comparison.

This case shows up the shortcomings in the current scheme which created the Ethics Commission. As in this case, most decisions on ethics complaints are NOT decided by the Commission, but the same old corrupt agencies who have NOT dealt with these issues in the past; namely the Secr of State and the Attorney General.

This is due to Joint Power Agreements (JPAs) between the Ethics Commission and those existing agency, which reserve nearly all the power to those agencies.

Did you REALLY expect the Trifecta to empower the Ethics Commission?? Of course not!! It would endanger them!! So, they created the Commission, and carefully tied its hands. The Commission is struggling to find purchase on this problem, and get more actual power to deal with the corruption, but it will be tough. The Trifecta carefully kept power from them.

Our media does not seem to see this, or report on it. But, as in this case, understanding of the JPAs is necessary to explain how the SOS can "clear" the Governor. As the SOS and AG are Democrats, of course they will clear the Governor!! Time to raise some a fuss with folks like Egolf and Wirth who put this fraud in place; creating the Commission and keeping the power in the corrupt agencies. Its a fraud.

Needed; restoring the power of the Grand Jury, and letting THEM investigate government corruption, and charge the many cases of Malfeasance... but then, the Democrats have, over time, taken all power FROM the Grand Jury, so they can be safe from oversight.
