Honest Services

Is the honest services clause in the mail fraud statute too broad? Yes.

Is Illinois a cesspool of corruption reaching to the highest levels of government and abetted by powerful elites? Yes.

You be the judge. John Kass column today.

On balance I say keep it. Because now America is at risk as well:
But does anyone expect White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, D-Tomczak, to push real ethical reform for President Barack Obama that would threaten powerful, connected politicians in Illinois?
America is at risk as well. Does any reasonable person think this unprecedented proliferation of radical (one has since resigned) and obscene and predatory czars is anything other than an under the radar power grab by the Obama administration?

Is this the mark of an honest and transparent government?

A final apropos remark from John Kass
not long ago.
