Ethics in Government (1980)

The erosion of confidence in American politics and government as a result of the frequent disclosures of the unethical conduct of an increasing number of elected and appointed officials has led to the disillusionment of the electorate. Morality and accountability are basic to democratic ideals.

Women’s League for Conservative Judaism supports the Congressional Ethics Committee in responsibly setting and maintaining high ethical standards in government. We urge that Sisterhood members become knowledgeable citizens and discerning voters.
