89 officials quit over new ethics rules. Government overkill?

Close to 90 government officials, from city hall to city planners, have quit their jobs rather than to submit to the new ethics rules requiring them to list their income sources, family members, certian debts, certain property ownership disclosures, and business connections. Oregonian article here. One lawmaker told me that he has to list all of the organizations he donates to because those organizations could have a lobby presence in the capitol. Not reporting your annual dues to your local chamber or rotary might land you in the government hot seat.

Looks like government over-reach is really causing problems.
