Nine members of state ethics board resign

EXCERPTS from article by Caroline Moss Baton Rouge, LA (WAFB)

It takes eight members to launch any ethics investigation, so right now, all
research is completely stopped. "Now, you're seeing it happen and we all
need to settle in to the fact that do not have real ethics enforcement from
here on out," Stonecipher says. He says board members are leaving because
legislators and the governor basically told them to. He made that prediction
in February. "We are going to effectively stop this ethics board from doing
what they otherwise normally do."
