Cynthia Davis: Ethics reform won't work

Rep. Cynthia Davis, R-O'Fallon, doesn't think much of Gov. Jay Nixon's proposal for ethics reform, according to a report on KCUR:

Republican State Rep. Cynthia Davis from O'Fallon says ethics reform won't accomplish much since any rule will probably have a loophole around it.

Cynthia Davis: "If these legislators can't even get the ten commandments right, what makes us think if we add a whole other layer of 15 more rules we're going to make people more ethical?"

Mrs. Davis can be considered somewhat of an expert on this, since she was painfully unaware that she was not allowed to use campaign funds to pay her personal tax debts.
