State Ethics Commission Calls in Outside Help: A Talk with Its New Mediator, Robert Constantine

Dec 20, 2013

On December 19, 2013, the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission (usually called the ethics commission) voted unanimously to hire some outside help to oversee the commission's operations, amid internal feuds and a pending Federal investigation.

The Commission hired Atlanta attorney Robert Constantine, who has previous experience at the State Capitol, as an administrative law judge with the workers' compensation system, an insurance lobbyist, and an insurance official in what used to be called the Comptroller's Office.

Constantine talked about his difficult new job in a conversation with WABE's Denis O'Hayer.
