That leaves Arkansas



If Louisiana -- Louisiana! -- can pass tough new ethics legislation, why can't Arkansas? Is Arkansas more corrupt?

I do predict that the Louisiana lobbyists will endeavor to find end-runs on the cap on meal expenses, just as Arkansas lobbyists have done. The first hurdle is getting them to report at all. There's a famous sin industry lobbyist in Arkansas who has a nightly open bar tab at a downtown watering hole. Last time, I checked, he'd filed no reportable expenditures on the legislature, though I've seen legislators drinking at his table. Maybe they were picking up their own tabs. You think?
