“Honey? What’s this gift from the Apple Growers Trade Association? What was it?”

“Um…”

No way in Hades this bill is introduced in Washington DC.

(From The USA Today)

Lobbyists in Missouri who have sex with state lawmakers or their aides would have to disclose that activity to the state ethics commission, under a bill introduced this week by a Republican state representative.

The measure, pushed by Rep. Bart Korman, defines sexual relations between lawmakers and lobbyists as a “gift” to be reported on the disclosure forms that lobbyists file on a monthly basis. The bill does not assign a “dollar valuation” to the gift of sex.
