The "anti-ethics coalition" in Santa Fe

Parnelli Gonzales link , I believe, coined the phrase
"anti-ethics coalition" to describe the group of state
legislators who stand between the culture of corruption
and meaningful ethics reform.

If the anti-ethics coalition is to be held accountable
at the polls in November,

how are voters to know their names?

The Journal won't print them.
And neither will, I suspect,
any other mainstream media outlet.

Who will tell us their names?

How can we vote them out of office
if we don't know their names?

Every member of the legislature has a record that they
established during the legislative session.

Each either stood up on the record and supported reform
or they did not.

Because when you pick a side when you don't pick a side;

I would suggest that any state legislator
who cannot produce a record of supporting reform efforts;

produces instead, a record of fighting against reform.
