Public officials and ethics

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

What are the ethical standards for elected officials? And if they violate that public trust, what is the path back? These are topics on voters' minds.

In New York, Eliot Spitzer is running for New York City comptroller. He resigned as governor after he was caught frequenting a high-priced call girl ring. And Anthony Weiner had to resign from Congress after a sexting scandal. He is running for New York City mayor and during the campaign more sexting pictures have come out.

Reed Loder is a Vermont Law School professor and ethicist. She appeared on The :30 to discuss ethics.
