Rusche: ‘This is about the institution’

House Minority Leader John Rusche, D-Lewiston, had this response to Speaker Lawerence Denney's statement today about Democrats' rhetoric on ethics: "My response to that is that if there are things that we are doing that impact people's confidence in government, we should be called to account." Said Rusche, "This isn't about individuals. This is about the institution and our government and how we serve our people."

Rusche said both parties are moving forward with a working group to develop bipartisan agreement on a new ethics commission bill. "I certainly hope that doesn't disrupt the progress that we've made," he said. "It takes all of us pushing together, I know that."
