Mike HarrisEssay Questions55961The editors of the New Republic suggested the following questions Will such be-havior affect performance on the job For example the book makes references to drunken legislators conducting the nations business on the floor three sheets to the wind In this case the good senators judgment would obviously be somewhat impaired Therefore he would not be performing the job that he was appointed to do The public in my opinion has the right to knowNext the editors asked if public disclosure was warranted if the law broken In my opinion if the law any law was broken by an elected official then the American public has a right to know For example in the case of former Washington DC Mayor Marion Bairy If it had not been for the press who knows how long or the extent to which a cover up would have gone on If the public is being lied to seems to also be a criteria for which I would advocate public disclosure When the news hit the fan about the Iran-contra controversy and that Olli North lied before the judiciary committee the press was absolutely justified in printing the information it had attained Again who knows how long the cover-up would have lastedLastly if the office makes special demands then a certain right to know coincides with it I believe that a president should act like a president The public has expectations of its elected officials and they have a duty to meet themI feel that it isnt possible to separate public morality from private because in a way they are both the same thing In a democracy the private person elects the public official Society must have standards and those standards must be dictated from that society Not from any one man or elected bodyHowever if it were possible to separate the two I think it would be note worthy step But I dont see that
