Transparency strikes again

This is why we have ethics reports published: so people who are interested can read up for fun, and perhaps even make a difference.

Case in point: The Beacon Backroom reported on a new Missouri Ethics Commission complaint against Cynthia Davis, who is a member of the Missouri House of Representatives and is challenging incumbent GOP state Senator Scott Rupp in next Tuesday's primary election.

I am impressed with this find and the analysis of it. "Dawson said today that she wanted to emphasize that good government, not politics, was her motivation. "I have a master's degree in public affairs," Dawson said. At the moment, she's also unemployed so "I have a lot of free time right now.""

Now that is putting spare time to good use.
