Personally, I think public officials should be held to a higher standard.

Unlike your average citizen, public officials should be audited completely for any wrong doings regularly. And while it would include financial/tax auditing I don’t mean just auditing their finances.

They should be investigated when they take office, each time they are re-elected and when they leave office.

As a public official you have given over your life to the public. I don’t mean we get to reveal their personal issues with their families etc. but given their level of power they should be checked against that power. Even a superficial investigation would give pause to those in power.

The country is built on checks and balances. Those that serve the country in positions of power should be subject to the same.
