Public’s perception of untrustworthiness is well fed RE “SENATE kills five-year ban on taking casino jobs: One-year prohibition OK’d for legislators’’ (Page A1, Sept. 28): Our lawmakers’ rationale for killing this bill is totally backward. Your reporter wrote that they felt that “a strong prohibition would only feed the public’s perception that lawmakers cannot be trusted.’’

My reaction is to the contrary. That is, it appears that the lawmakers are more interested in getting on casinos’ payroll as fast as possible, before their contacts dry up, and it just confirms my view that they cannot be trusted.

They should all be voted out.
