Should politicians have to have a criminal background check?

Seems the Gordon case here in RI is getting interesting. There are calls for criminal background checks for politicians.

And we’ve got our Attorney General Peter Kilmartin is opposed.

Well A.G. Kilmartin, when I worked for the office back in 2001 I had a full BCI and NCIC check done against me. So why shouldn’t politicians be required to submit to the same?

  1. I’d love to see it happen. Accountability for past actions keeps many people in check in the workplace, public and private, and for good reason. Why not politicians?
