Ethics probe into gifts to legislators

Investigate campaign contributions

The state ethics panel is barking up the wrong tree. [“Ethics probe may revamp rules on gifts to legislators,” page one, July 23.]

Why are they investigating the influence of a few thousand dollars’ worth of lunches on our legislators, and at the same time ignoring millions of dollars in campaign contributions and their effect on legislation?
