Vagueblogging a bit, but avoiding the "appearance of impropriety" is a good standard for public figures, because these people absolutely should be held to a high standard than what is technically legal, especially as our legal system is unlikely to bother even with public figures obviously helping themselves to public funds, unless they're black city politicians.

As I said, vagueblogging a bit, but I have seen quite a lot of actions by public figures (and I mean the good, or at least better, guys here) being justified recently that I can't imagine being justified and excused even 15 years ago. I'm not imagining some golden age of Standards and Purity, just saying it was... better? I think? Some behavior was actually deservedly embarrassing.
