William J. Rhodes: Legislators misled also

Legislators misled also

The June 11 letter, “ ‘Ag-gag’ absurdity,” makes a good point in referencing Senate Bill 648 and specifically job application fraud that will make it a crime to mislead on a job application.

Let’s look a step deeper. This and other recent bills propose sweeping changes to the way N.C. does business. They require that people who intend to expose wrong-doing must list this intention on their job application.

Did any of the current legislators, while running for office, disclose during their campaigns that they would increase sales tax, charge hybrid vehicle owners higher taxes or restrict funds to mass transit?

Maybe legislators should clean their houses first.
