Response to MysticLynx (Reply #42)

85. Well, actually, any campaigning of any sort

whether offensive, or non-offensive, on official time would be a mis-use of public funds and an ethics violation by both Brown and his staffer.

If the official staff are working on the campaign, they should be doing so on vacation time or have taken official leaves of absence without pay. If they are still getting their full pay and have not taken time off work, they are violating the laws regardless of their behavior.

I am not saying this to excuse what they did or to imply they are not pricks or to say they should not be fired. They should be fired.

But I just wanted to clarify the law.
