Government Professor Sandy Maisel in the New York Times

For an article about new House majority leader John A. Boehner, the New York Times sought wisdom from Colby College professor and director of the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement at Colby College, L. Sandy Maisel. The article focuses on Boehner’s progress (or lack thereof)  in bringing about ethics reform in the way Congress interacts with lobbyists.

“The Republican Party needed somebody to say they were a reform candidate, so he said it,” said L. Sandy Maisel, a professor of government and director of the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement at Colby College. “But in reality, he’s carrying on in the tradition not just of DeLay, but past Democratic and Republican leaders alike.”
