Ethics in Illinois.

After all the fallout with Rod Blagojevich, it’s probably a good thing that the state of Illinois has an Ethics Commission.  It’s also a good thing for those of us who appreciate irony like, say, a former commissioner for the Ethics Committee getting popped for violating ethics laws.

A former member of the Illinois Executive Ethics Commission has been fined $2,500 for violating the state ethics law.

A commission report released Tuesday said Stephen Thurston attended a March 2011 prayer breakfast and campaign fundraiser for a Chicago City Council candidate.

State law prohibits commissioners from contributing to political campaigns or even attending a political event related to a specific office.

Oh, Illinois.  You so cray.

I suspect that Thurston was an effective commissioner for the Ethics Committee just like the pope is exactly the man you want hunting down child rapists.
