Governor Jodi Rell has declared today "Ethics Day" in the state of Connecticut - but, when is it ever not "ethics day?"
The daylong ethics conference is mandated by stricter state laws, put in place following the Rowland Administration scandal. Rell came into office with a mandate to "clean up" a state that had been dubbed "Corrupticut" for it's many high-level officials jailed on corruption charges. But even her own office has not been free of scandal...just this past week, a report by the Attorney General cleared her chief of staff of any "criminal" wrongdoing in the 2006 election campaign - but pointed to what many people consider "unethical" behavior.
So, what's the difference? Is ethical behavior driven by laws - or personal conduct? Can you really teach "integrity?'
Today, where we live, a discussion of ethics with the Executive Director of the Office of State Ethics - and, we'll ask you what ethics really means in our society.
