Do We Want Honesty In Elected Officials All The Time?

Right now their is a lot of covered dishonesty going on right now in the realm of local politics. One thing that is standing out to us is how much covered dishonesty are you willing to stomach just because the person being dishonest is on your side or team? First let us explain what we mean by covered dishonesty:

  • Local elected officials are not acting right and are breaking rules. The policing powers ( Fair Political Practices Commission, District Attorney’s Public Integrity Unit and The Press) refuse to hold elected officials accountable where does that leave us? 

Now if someone listed the wrong ID number on their campaign mailers making it impossible to determine who the mailer belonged to would that be ok? So were wondering where do you fall when it comes to honesty in local elected officials? Do you hold your candidates to the same standards as their opponents?
