An elected state official may accept compensation for participating as a
commentator on state government issues on a weekly television program as
long as the company that owns the television station operates independent of
its corporate parent, which is a lobbying principal. Unless an official has
evidence to the contrary, he or she may rely on the television stations’s representation
that in asking the official to appear on the television program it
has not acted in consultation or cooperation with, or at the request or
suggestion of, the parent company that is a principal. (OEB94-9) October 24,
