In your view, did the governor violate the ethics of public trust when she pressured the emergency dispatcher and asked for witness info?

10-16-3. Ethical principles of public service; certain official acts prohibited; penalty.
A. A legislator or public officer or employee shall treat the legislator’s or public officer’s or employee’s government position as a public trust. The legislator or public officer or employee shall use the powers and resources of public office ONLY TO ADVANCE THE PUBLIC INTEREST and NOT to OBTAIN PERSONAL BENEFITS or PURSUE PRIVATE INTERESTS. Note: It’s a fourth degree felony.

Excellent, Peter!
