GOP US House targets ethics office; in WI, GOP trashed it

Republicans in the US House of Representatives are targeting the independent Office of Government Ethics, (OEG),  after its Executive Director criticized incoming GOP President Donald Trump's continuing business relationships.

So much for independent ethics reviews.

Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature targeted and then abolished the independent Government Accountability Board, (GAB), after its Executive Director and non-partisan oversight board comprised of retired judges participated in an investigation of GOP Governor Scott Walker and his relationships with business and third-party donors:

Scott Walker signs bills dismantling GAB, overhauling campaign finance law
So much for independent ethics reviews.
