From Greg Aymond’s Central La Politics blog (bold mine):
LEGISLATOR WANTS MORE DIVERSITY ON THE ETHICS BOARD
“State Rep. Rosalind Jones wants to get more racial, gender and geographical diversity on the 11-member Louisiana Board of Ethics.”id. “The board currently has two female appointees, one of whom is the only black member.” id.
While I am sure that someone who is Black must be qualified for the position, ethics among Blacks is usually a lacking character trait. I think that the Louisiana Legislature should devote more of its time on fixing our deplorable ethics laws in this state.
Representative Jones, who, I believe, is one of the best young leaders in our State, simply suggests that the Ethics Board should more accurately reflect the diversity of the State in which it serves, and Greg essentially dismisses the idea because he believes blacks “usually” lack ethics.
