North Carolina: Lobbyists Can Provide Sex To Politicians

STATE ETHICS AGENCY: CARNAL DESIRES NOT “THINGS OF VALUE”

|| By FITSNEWS || Frankly, this is a news headline we thought we’d see originating in South Carolina … where the typical politician’s appetite for sex is every bit as voracious as their appetite for growing government.

But no, this story comes to us courtesy of the N.C. State Ethics Committee (NCSEC), which effectively legalized prostitution for lobbyists and special interests seeking to influence politicians in the Tar Heel State.

According to a February ruling from the agency, “sexual favors or sexual acts” do not constitute gifts or “things of value.”  And therefore do not have to be reported to the committee.

“Consensual sexual relationships do not have monetary value and therefore are not reportable as gifts,” the commission determined.

Whoa … wouldn’t that depend on the lobbyist?

Bottom line?  Lobbyists in North Carolina are now expressly authorized to have sex with politicians  – provided they do “not receive payment from the lobbyist principal for engaging in the sexual relationship.”  And the special interests footing the bill are now free to register legions of new “lobbyists” for the explicit purpose of satisfying the carnal desires of North Carolina politicians.

“Even more disturbing are the long-term implications,” the website Addicting Info noted.  “Let us say a politician does partake, yet the person who paid for the night of temptation was a less than honest broker.  A few hidden cameras, some veiled threat that did not cross the line into blackmail territory, a night of infidelity could put a politician into a less honorable group’s pocket without major cost, and all now rendered perfectly legal by the Ethics Committee of North Carolina.”

Also worth considering?  The whole “thing of value” definition …

Were politicians to decriminalize prostitution – as this website has consistently pushed for – there would be no debating whether sexual favors were a thing of value.  They clearly would be – as they clearly are.

Honestly, what do you think has more “value?”  Some silly framed certificate?  Or a night between the sheets with a high class call girl?

in unrelated news, many politicians abandon their states to move to north carolina. the most common reason is “it will make it easier for my children to get into UNC”

“He just kept rushing through the lovemaking, which is the part I like, the beginning part. Most women are like that. We need time to warm up. Why is this hard for you guys to understand? You’re the first people to tell us not to gun a cold engine. You want us to go from zero to sixty in 5.5. We’re not built like that. We stall.”

If “sexual favors or sexual acts” do not constitute gifts or “things of value” in North Carolina, they must not be doing it right.

So. They can keep busting hookers in the Tarheel state, and offer them the opportunity to do “community service” as “lobbyists”, in lieu of jail time.

Elegant solution.

Of course, looking at it another way, it means a possible drain on the hot pharmaceutical rep talent pool in that state.

Next thing you know, sex tapes will be de rigeur for “Professional” LinkedIn resumes by hot womens. Maybe some mens too?

That’s all I’ve got for now. Carry on.

Then there was the prostitute who got herself arrested so she could be tried by the jury.

Her lawyer was doing his best with the jury, as he was telling the twelve men who sat in judgment about her amorous personality, and explained in detail how often and in which ways she performed her sexual exploits, “Shall we find this lovely, long-legged, busty blonde guilty and keep her from returning to her expensive condo, telephone number 555-3267?”

The jury came in with a verdict. She was to have an ‘A’ tattooed on her in a discreet spot.

The judge was curious, “Why an ‘A’?

The jury foreman said, “Because that’s the highest grade we give!”

How to prove that the woman enjoys sex more than the man. When your ear itches and you put your little finger in and wiggle it around and take it out again, what feels better – your finger or your ear?
