Office Of Government Ethics: 'We Seem To Have Lost Contact With The Trump-Pence Transition Team Since The Election' — Um, WHAT?!

no title

If everybody is worried about your administration being a horribly unethical swamp of cronyism and corruption, the best thing you can do is… uh, ignore the ethics watchdogs entirely?!

That's apparently the move Donald Trump's transition team is making as the President-elect prepares to officially enter the White House in less than two weeks, according to a damning new report out from NBC.

The Office Of Government Ethics, and its director, Walter Shaub, have been emailing and calling Trump aides steadily since the election but, according to new emails obtained by MSNBC from Shaub, "we seem to have lost contact with the Trump-Pence transition since the election."

Um… what?

WHAT?!

In the entire series of emails, Shaub is sobering and forthright, pointing out that Trumps transition team must be monitored by "crucial ethics guidance," lest they break federal rules.

In one email, referring a federal conflict of interest, Shaub wrote to a Trump aide:

Should We Resurrect Extinct Species??

Filed under: Science!EndangeredDinosaur

Sure, everyone wants their own pet T-Rex!

Though remember, they may be cute when they're babies, but once they start to get too big, you can't just flush them down the toilet like a New York City alligator myth. LOLz!

All jokes aside, just because we have the ability to do something, does it mean we should??

When it comes to extinct species, if we can get our hands on a sample of their DNA, there's a good chance we'd be able to bring them back.

Ethically though, is that something we should do?

Sure, they once lived on this planet, but their era has long since passed.

But we want a pet wooly mammoth!!

Check out the video (above) to hear a scientist argue for and against extinct species resurrection!

The View FIGHTS Over Punishing Kids Through Social Media

Filed under: Whoopi Goldberg

Different strokes for different hosts.

The View had a semi-intense discussion on whether or not it was ethical for a parent to publicly punish their child on Facebook as one mother did to her daughter.

Whoopi Goldberg didn't have a problem with it at least, and seemed to think it was just fine.

Watch the video (above) and tell us what U think.

State Bar Of Florida Starts Up Investigation Of Casey Anthony's Lawyer

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersBusted!

casey anthony lawyer being investigated

This is what we like to hear!

We've just learned that the State Bar of Florida has started up an investigation of Casey Anthony's lawyer Jose Baez for "possible ethical violations," such as "hiding information from the court."

The investigation stems from Casey's check fraud conviction in 2010. She was given one year's probation, and was told by the judge that time she spent in jail before her murder trial would NOT count towards her probation time.

Unfortunately,

George Lucas Wants To Bring Back The Dead!

george-lucas-buys-rights-to-deceased-icons-footage-to-digitally-include-them-in-new-feature

Something about this makes us feel extremely uncomfortable.

Director and special effects king George Lucas has reportedly starting buying the rights to deceased film legends like Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck so he can use the old footage, and combine it with technology to digitally place them in a new feature!

According to Lucas' friend Mel Smith:

"George has been buying up the film rights to dead actors in the hope of using computer trickery to put them all together, so you'd have Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck alongside today's stars."

Doesn't seem very respectful to the actors and their memory!

Just because you have the technology to do something doesn't mean you should!

Hasn't anyone seen Jurassic Park?! LOLz!

But in all seriousness, we hope that whatever he's planning on doing is taken with the utmost care and respect to their families. We all saw what happened to the new Star Wars trilogy when he focused on the CGI instead of, you know, the actual actors.

Thoughts??

Leona Talks Ethical Clothing With Cavalli

wenn3023408_e.jpg

Leona Lewis was on a mission before sitting front row at Roberto Cavalli this week.

The singer, who is an avid animal rights activist and vegetarian, questioned the designer about how ethical his clothes are just minutes before sending the leather and snakeskin collection down the runway.

Surprisingly, Roberto was very open to what Leona had to say and agreed to make animal-friendly designs for her.

Wow.

We're sure it didn't hurt that she's a mayjah celebrity and good looking.
