Even if what Calderon did is legal, it isn't ethical

Re "FBI raid reveals need for - and hurdles to - reform" (Viewpoints, June 13): Perhaps Sen. Ron Calderon's self-gratifying actions may have been legal; however the question remains have they been ethical?

Ethics doesn't seem to be a necessary ingredient in most politicians' character today. Calderon's actions demonstrate a personal goal that says he should get what he can while the getting's good. Sadly, this investigation will probably blow over and Calderon will survive to run for another office and people will still vote for him.

I assume he's comfortable with his conscience since all his actions have been "legal." However, I'll bet his mother isn't very proud of him.
