Ethics inflation

By Charles Ashby

Seems like no one is immune from inflation in these tough economic times. Even the cost of ethics has gone up.

Colorado's Independent Ethics Commission, established in 2006 when voters approved Amendment 41 limiting what gifts politicians can accept, announced today that the $50 cap on gifts to government officials was going up.

As required under the amendment, the commission has for the first time applied inflation to that amount. Now politicians and government officials can't accept gifts that exceed $53.
