Anderson: 'Diminished that oath'

Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest Lake, told the House Ethics Committee, "It could be an array of things that cause ethics issues to rise up. ... I don't know why we have an oath if it's not going to be enforced." He said he believes Hart has violated his oath of office. "I take that very serious when I raise my hand to swear on upholding the constitution of both the state and the federal government, I think that we all should and most of us do. But it is a reflection when we are doing things that are inappropriate, we have ... diminished that oath. When one person, one part diminishes it, I think it's diminished for all."

Anderson noted that Hart has gone through numerous court proceedings on his claims, all unsuccessful. "There have not been any of these proceedings that have been favorable in terms of Rep. Hart, but yet he still continually as a legislator says that he's done no wrong," he said.
