The State of Georgia has recently been named the worst in the nation for ethics and transparency in government. The current GOP leadership has virtually broken the state Ethics Committee. The have reduced its size, budget, and authority; effectively crippling our ability to investigate and prosecute ethics violations.
Republicans have made Georgia a laughing-stock nationally in regards to Ethics. As your state representative I will proposed legislation to strengthen ethics laws and provide stiff penalties for those who violate the public trust. A "slap-on-the-wrist" is not a sufficient deterrent to prevent government corruption; violation of the public trust should result in jail time.
