“Public office is a public trust.” NOT YOUR PERSONAL TRUST FUND.
Still geeking out with Law on Public Officers. It’s a funny subject, really. The political farce kind of way. Our class takes this subject seriously, but we almost always end up laughing during lectures because what the book teaches us public officials ought to do, they don’t and what the book teaches us public officials ought to NOT do, they do. The truth about
most some public officers (the inept, corrupt and greedy kind) make the Law on Public Officers appear like fiction. But as our professor always reminds us during class, for purposes of passing the bar, what the book says still holds true even if some public officers don’t necessarily live out this truth. Somehow, this kind of makes me sad.
