    Et tu Brute!!!

    Very appropriate when the Legislature is potentially considering and passing a bill to let an executive of the state control his/her own investigation. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse. A bill in one day due to a lawsuit filed against an individual such as the Attorney General or Lieutenant Governor? This is even less transparency than President Obama has since that is what he campaigned for in 2008. The Benghazi thing is in another country. If an AG and Lt. Governor are in our state we have special rules for them?

    Integrity goes down little by little in a free society. We have gotten to a point where we don't care about who is telling the truth? The AG always talks about being the top law enforcement officer in the state. He should not have a different investigation process for himself. He is a real politician using politics to get his way.

    Et Tu Brute lives on as we are the Caesars that allow this to happen. Laws like this should go through a legislative process not like the Obamacare, vote for it and then try to understand it later.

    My guess is the Romans were "wary" of giving one person too much power, and not "weary."

    This would be a great research paper activity for students.

    After a research report, students can compare, and contrast politics of different era's.
