IOWA ETHICS BOARD OF LAWYERS CITES LAW AGAIN!

11-23-15

Greetings, Megan Tooker, executive director and legal counsel for the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board, and all—

Please forward this post to all ethics board members and Jim Merideth of rural Muscatine.  Thank you very much.

The ethics complaint Jim Merideth filed against Muscatine Mayor DeWayne Hopkins, for using his official office for campaign purposes, was dismissed by the Ethics board, according to the 11-23-15 Cedar Rapids Gazette. 

The Gazette reported,  “Megan Tooker, director and legal counsel for the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board, notified Hopkins via email of the complaint Oct. 30 and suggested she didn't think he violated any law with the Facebook post.”

Ethics Board Chairman James Albert agreed!!  It is all about the law.  It has nothing to do with ethics and ethics wasn’t cited in the dismissal ruling, to Iowalive’s knowledge. 

The name of the  Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board should be changed to the Iowa Law and Campaign Disclosure Board!!  It has nothing to do with ethics, as Iowalive reported on website  IOWA ETHICS BOARD OF LAWYERS VS. ETHICS .

IS THIS HEAVEN?  NO!!  IT’S IOWA ‘ETHICS BOARD’ LAWYERS THUMBING THEIR NOSES AT ETHICS--AGAIN!!!

Sincerely,
