Read about it here. The vote is early tomorrow Tuesday Jan 3, so call your rep tonight and leave a message. If their mailbox is full, try the local office. You can find out who is your rep here

Script: “The Gutting of the Office of Congressional Ethics.   I’m calling about the effort to undermine the Office of Congressional Ethics known as the Goodlatte* Amendment. President-elect Trumpf’s many conflicts of interest make Americans such as myself fear we are headed toward kleptocracy, so we need the legislative branch to provide a check on executive power. If the House dismantles its own ethics office, how can we trust that they have the spine to represent our interests in the Trumpf Administration? Please vote “no” on this rule change.”

*Pronounced “GUUD-lat”

Why the House Ethics Changes Matter?
