D.C. Council Talking Ethics Today

D.C. Council members are discussing what could become its ethics policy in a 3 1/2-hour meeting Tuesday. The work session began at 9:30 a.m., although council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8), whose hiring of a girlfriend and issues surrounding earmarks prompted a new focus on council ethics, was not there for its start.

According to a Sept. 3 memorandum, council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D) sent to his colleagues, a group called CityEthics is helping "assist us in reviewing and discussing a set of proposed documents, including a draft code of ethics and a blueprint for developing a robust, sustainable approach."
