The New York State Republican Assembly Campaign Committee lists on its official agenda the need for "Ethics reform, to ensure your government works for you and not for its own interests." However, we can now be sure that committee members don't hold themselves up to those same high standards. They work for their own interests regardless of which ethical lines they have to cross.
The proof is in Newsday's disclosure that the committee hired a private investigator to put electronic surveillance equipment on Democratic Assemb. Edward Hennessey's car ["Bug tracked Dem's residency," News, Sept. 7].
