Darrin Sobin '92, the District of Columbia's Director of Government Ethics, is working with the D.C. Council on passing emergency legislation that would grant the District's ethics board the power to issue nonpublic admonishments.

"It would give the board greater flexibility and much needed flexibility in administering sanctions for violations of the code conduct," said Darrin Sobin.

The informal, nonpublic admonishment for city workers could be applied to very minor infractions, Sobin said. For example, he said, if a government employee used an office computer to scan a child's homework assignment, that might warrant the nonpublic admonishment from the Board of Ethics and Government Accountability, whose members are selected by the mayor.
