Description

After finding that 12 local politicians owed money to the state, The Times examined the state ethics board's fining system. It showed that "the ethics board may have selectively enforced fines, had allowed delinquent candidates to run for office despite a state law forbidding them from doing so, and conducted the majority of its business in secret."
