Legislative town hall meetings: Not exactly a Batman premiere…

Still catching up here, but the state Legislative Ethics Board last week ruled that Sen. Mike Carrell technically violated state law when he handed campaign fliers -- upon request, apparently -- to a couple of people at a town hall meeting he held in the small city of DuPont. But the board decided to drop the matter, saying it was too minor to merit any discipline.

The most amusing part of the investigation report, however -- and a cautionary note to anyone thinking that a seat in the statehouse confers some sort of political star power -- is the reference to "one or both of the two members of the public in attendance" at the town hall meeting.
