in yesterday's Stamford Advocate
keeps asking the question,
Who should pay? The article is referring to attorney's fees
related to an ethics proceeding. Most ethics codes do not deal with
this issue, and therefore it often turns into a big political
controversy after the fact,
leaving a bad taste in citizens' mouths, especially if they are
forced to foot the bill.
For this reason, it should be clear from the start who pays, under what circumstances, and how much.
