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?
NORTH CAROLINA ETHICS COMMITTEE RULING (.pdf)
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”
Damn skippy! I hereby announce I am running for every political office possible in North Carolina…
Just when I think your idiocy has reached its apex…
Danni bloom. Huggins hater. She can’t get her mail. She is a mail hater
I’m danni bloom Id have sex with a horse if it got me my mail delivered.
I can give you instructions on how to do that. They call me “Mr. Hands.”
“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.”
Bill Gates visited a prostitute. She charged him the basic rate, plus $ 99.95 for the upgrade, manual and customer support.
Give us an update Danni on your mail situation. Before you decide to fuck that horse have you considered just having your mail delivered to Will’s house for pick up?
She could just have it delivered to me. I don’t really have “horse” credentials. I’m hung more like a horse jockey :( But I do deliver.
HAW! HAW! HAW!
A very craftily worded ruling that tenderly tip-toes to avoid any mention of dogs, goats, or jackasses.
Does anyone have a copy of the bathroom etiquette for homosexual encounters?
Seen on a bathroom wall — “My mother made me a homosexual”
Underneath — “If I give your mother the wool, will she make me one?”
“Consensual sexual relationships do not have monetary value”
If only that were true….
It’s all about family values. Keeping the pipes clean keep the mind clear and the heart pure.
“North Carolina: Lobbyists Can Provide Sex To Politicians”
Makes sense to me, the politicians have been screwing their constituents for years…
Well done, sir. You forgot to add that it wasn’t mutually enjoyable either.
Oh I think the pols enjoy it all to well..
NEWS FLASH: All roads in SC are now safe to travel. The SC legislators arrived at 7am for a special session, the purpose of which has not been disclosed to this news organization.
According to a February ruling from the agency, “sexual favors or sexual acts” do not constitute gifts or “things of value.”?
Try going home and repeating that! To a degree, all women are lobbyists of some sort.
Harry Cato may move to North Carolina and resume his political career.
Finally, away to get the money out of politics.
I’m blowing pols all day (except when I’m on Fitsnews or HoPo).
Why is this a surprise? You don’t think lobbiest are already sucking dicks?
If “sexual favors or sexual acts” do not constitute gifts or “things of value” in North Carolina, they must not be doing it right.
A famous North Carolinian once said something very similar….
Time to put a bunch of hookers on the payroll!
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.
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.
“That’s all I’ve got for now” — Buz, don’t stop now, I need more suggestions! There are many “hottie” female sales reps, but some do better than others…..
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!”
Bob Coble’s value as a power-broker just went way down.
on that basis Abramoff gets off scot free in NC? Go fig
Just as long as it’s not gay sex, I’ll bet! THAT’s probably still illegal lol
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?
free sex! YEAH!
In my next life I want to be a lobbyist
