Ignorance of the Law is No Excuse

Especially when you have a law degree.  The ratio of lawyers in Washington, DC is probably higher than anywhere in the world and even higher when Congress is in session.  One of the prerequisites for political office has become passing a bar exam.  Yet after being elected to office, politicians have no recollection of tax law, ethics, or professional responsibility. 

I haven’t read it, I haven’t been briefed on that issue, or I just found out about it this morning.

We don’t want an official statement that has been combed through and manipulated by defense attorneys.  We want the truth, simply put, and in plain English.  Legal speak only comments on the surface of the water, we deserve to know what is lurking underneath.  No more excuses.  Transparency, honesty, and respect!  Accountability begins November 2, 2010!
