Darrin Sobin '92, the District of Columbia's Director of Government Ethics, is asking lawmakers to broaden the District ethics board's authority, criminalizing certain conduct for the first time and strengthening laws intended to prevent conflicts of interest.

Darrin Sobin said this week that the panel's request for enhanced powers was "intended to send a message that ethics reform is active and ongoing."

The board's 16 recommendations to District lawmakers emphasized the need for tougher rules to avoid "indirect action that creates an appearance of nepotism-based conflict of interest" and suggested "romantic and cohabitant relationships" be included in anti-nepotism guidelines.
