Retired judge files ethics complaint against House speaker, Feb. 17

“‘Should there be no lawyers in the Legislature?’ Well, like any other profession, I’d be fine with them being represented as long as it’s not unethical scum suckers.” Alan Kemp

“Come on Mr. Egolf. You were so professional and for the people when you first started with the legislature. Don’t go wrong now. We need you.” Grace Trujillo

“As the only citizen Legislature in the country, we first need to start paying them. This takes the risks of bribery off the table (not always but reduces it) allows those who are not just the wealthy to run for office, and levels the playing field.” Kim Griego-Kiel

“Let’s don’t stop here, let’s have a paid Legislature who cannot hold other jobs, end paid lobbyists and get all money out of politics. No? That is what I thought.” Jim Clark

“We are allowing those whose jobs it is to interpret law to actually scribe and define it.” Bob Chilton
