"Legislators shall not lobby until 2 years after leaving office." Thumbs up.
"Statewide elected officials and legislators and their staff, employees, and family shall not receive any lobbyist gifts with a value of over $50." Right on, brother.
"Those who offer anything of value to any elected or appointed public official or employee of the state in exchange for an action affecting legislation or rulemaking and those who accept such value in such instances are guilty of a class D felony." Tough on crime - this guy Kraus is the real deal!
"Officers, employees, and agents of public schools and universities are barred from making public expenditures to advocate, support, or oppose legislation, ballot measures, and candidates." Four more years! Four mo - wait, what was that last one again?
Kevin Hartman was among the highest-profile players to don a Kansas City Wizards jersey. He spent three seasons as the Wizards goalkeeper, one of many stops during a career that made him among the longest-serving and better-known players in Major League Soccer history.
After the 2009 season when the Wizards failed to make the playoffs, Hartman couldn't agree to a new contract with the Wizards and left the team.
Enter Jimmy Nielsen. Hardly anyone in the United States knew about Nielsen. He was 32 years old when he came to the Wizards, having spent a career plying his trade in Denmark, a country that produces many good soccer players but has a league that's overlooked compared with those in countries like England, Spain, Germany and Italy. Nielsen left a troubled past behind in Denmark, including a well-documented gambling addiction.
