It’s more tangled when you are friends with the person.

Our people have to learn a simple fact, and that is that they will be under scrutiny 24/7 by the 'Rat dirt machine. So even an appearance of impropriety will get built up into a major scandal. Rule number one is, don't accept "gifts", don't accept "free money" for personal use. Pay your way and earn what you get.

It isn't fair and it is a double standard, of course, but it's the way it is in today's political world. The 'Rats, of course, get a pass. In fact, when a 'Rat breaks the law, it helps them. People think they're "cool", or "a playah".

So true...
When my hubs was in a position to get compted for a $1500/night hotel room in New Orleans for three nights, we had to say no thanks and pay for it ourselves because of concerns for future investigations... and we could ill-afford the expense.
