Memo to Legislative Ethics Committee: Investigate Thom Tillis

Inexplicably, there are reports that the Legislative Ethics Committee is not going to investigate the Speaker's-Office-Sex-With-Lobbyists Scandal.

The Legislative Ethics Committee denied the investigation request saying it did not have the authority to investigate legislative employees or lobbyists. The committee governs the conduct of elected lawmakers in the General Assembly

On what planet do these people operate?

Lobbyists were sleeping with people in the SPEAKER'S OFFICE.

Namely, the SPEAKER'S CHIEF OF STAFF WHO IS ALSO THE SPEAKER'S ROOMMATE and the SPEAKER'S POLICY ADVISOR.

It's more than a little possible that they were trying to influence SPEAKER TILLIS.

Hey, Legislative Ethics Committee, that is the legislator (Tillis) whose actions you investigate.

Now that you've been reminded of your duty and who to investigate. Get to work determining if sex sold in the speaker's office influenced legislation.

Shocked! Shocked! That lobbyists could use sex to influence

Good gravy!

Why are members of the Legislative Ethics Committee apparently accepting the notion that lobbyists were just having sex with members of the SPEAKER'S staff and not expecting anything in return? Maybe there wasn't, but you don't know unless you investigate.

Shame on the Legislative Ethics Committee for saying they have no jurisdiction to investigate when they most certainly do.
