Good Ms. Osburn

BEFORE THE NEVADA COMMISSION ON ETHICS
NRS 281.481(7) prohibits a public officer or employee from using “governmental time, property, equipment or other facility to benefit his personal or financial interest.” Further, NRS 281.481(2) prohibits a public officer or employee from using his position in government to secure or grant unwarranted privileges, preferences, exemptions or advantages for, inter alia, himself or any business entity in which he has a significant pecuniary interest.

Clearly, pursuant to NRS 281.481(7), Ms. Osburn is prohibited from soliciting for Quixtar product sales and/or recruiting as Quixtar IBOs those with whom she has contact while she is on official duty as a State of Nevada Health Facilities Surveyor II.
But..... what if a doctor tired from FED doing a surgery on Monday?

Very intresting...perhaps it will open the floodgate to lay the smackdown on all prospecting for solicitations!

Now this is indeed an interesing thing to see. And the doctor thing is a scary notion. I shudder to think where the unfortunate surgery patients extremeties will end up as a result!

Thing is, one of the books given to IBOs (I still have my copy, come to think of it) as a book by John C. Maxwell entitled "There's No Such Things As Business Ethics."

Now granted, the book is about applying the "Golden Rule" to business, which ideally one should, as with all of their life, but something tells me most folks are just going off of the title to do their business, which leads to things like the topic of this post. Scary.

She was found not guilty btw.

But being prosecuted and have a public record is bad enough.
