Here’s an update from yesterday’s post on the no-longer mandatory ethics pledge Mayor Vince Gray wants all his employees to sign.

Per Gray’s spokesman Pedro Ribeiro:

For clarification, the Ethics Pledge is mandatory and employees who refuse to sign must take additional ethics training as a result. It is mandatory, and if you don’t do it, you will have to take ethics classes.

In other words, Gray’s message to city employees is: Just sign the damn pledge already!
