Publicly discusses seeking a moonlighting gig totally in the bounds of the law.
He doesn't end up taking the job, but in the interest of transparency discloses that he is seeking additional income to support his elderly mother. He even seeks a legal opinion from the Attorney General's office to make sure he is acting within the law.
Bilks the taxpayers for tax money he doesn't deserve and didn't earn. Doesn't disclose he is taking the money, but pockets the tax free cash and hopes no one notices.
Caught with his hand in the public's cookie jar.
Editorials: nowhere. Coverage: crickets…
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
