From what you know about these guys, could you possibly have anticipated anything else?
Oklahoma legislators have declared that what they do once they leave state service is none of a watchdog agency’s business.
The Oklahoma Ethics Commission in February voted unanimously to bar legislators and other elected state officials from becoming lobbyists during their first two years out of office. It also voted to put the restriction on departing state agency heads.
On Wednesday, both the House and the Senate rejected those ethics rules on grounds the Ethics Commission had overstepped its bounds.
And Governor Fallin, about to run up against term limits, of course agreed.
