The Democrat-controlled N.C. state legislature -- most especially the august state senate -- steps back from real ethics reform and puts its wing-tips into a fresh cow-plop.
The latest version of an ethics reform bill would keep complaints against state legislators secret, along with any hearings. Yep. Secrecy in government, we've always found, is the first clue that everything's just hunky-dory. Witness the regime in Washington.
And shutting the public out of the process ... the first rule in democracy!
