As we reported yesterday, St. Louis County government employees are now being required to take an “ethics quiz” as part of their new ethics training… a quiz where they will be given all of the answers in order to guarantee that everyone passes with 100% efficiency.
(Or, as the layman would call it, “not a quiz”.)
Considering the unethical nature of the quiz about ethics, we have provided you with a portion of the test itself… for your enjoyment.
