New Petition: Put Politicians on Probation

probationWhy not put politicians on probation when they first get to Washington?

A WashingtonWatch.com user has put this interesting idea up as a petition. Newly elected officials seem to go native from the moment they arrive. So how about putting them on probation to let them know they’ll get an early exit if they don’t represent constituents well?

The petition is called “Help Us Save Our Hides!”

We wrote about some similar ideas in our review of the book, “A Better Congress: Change the Rules, Change the Results.”

Probation for politicians. That’s the kind of original thinking that we created petitions for! If you like the idea, sign on, and then follow the instructions, using our handy tools to tell your friends!
