I thought having the power to engage in illegal conduct, and such as influence peddling, and while also usually being able to get away with it, was one of the primary reasons to become a member of a city council or a county board of supervisors.

In other words if we make a regular habit of forcing the big boys in government to follow the law, then most of the type of creatures who presently are interested in high elected office will no longer be.
