OK, lets do this ONE MORE TIME

An article in the Tennessean profiled Rep. Ulysses Jones and his opposition to new ethics legislation. In a sidebar, one of the two bills that was highlighted was HB1779/SB1287
Of this bill Jones said:
Another, which won final approval from the legislature Thursday, would allow lawmakers to escape fines if they don’t fully disclose campaign contributions. The bill is subject to interpretation, but may excuse violations even if they were intentional. Jones said that was not his intent.
OK...lets look at the video one MORE TIME...am I missing something here? Rep. Jones is asked point blank by Rep. Vaughn, does this bill cover acts of commission as well as omission? He said it covers BOTH!!!!!!
