Recently I have learned that it is legally unacceptable for a congressman to accept a dinner of oyster pasta from a given lobbying group, however, that same public servant is able to eat raw oysters offered to them by the very same lobbyists. Why is this? Because oyster pasta requires the use of silverware, whereas raw oysters do not.
It’s an issue of ethics. That’s what I read in the Wall Street Journal.
Admittedly, I’m very tired right now, but if I were wide awake I still would find this to be incredibly stupid. Politicians, what a crazy bunch they are. I think I’d do well in a place with fewer rules.
