Where do they think they are? Illinois?

Massachusetts politicians see the grand tradition of Illinois pols being so blatant as to actually be imprisoned for their crimes, and apparently decide Club Med retirements aren't so bad.
House Assistant Majority Leader Charley Murphy (D-Burlington) said he’s “disappointed,” but when asked if legislators will change how they conduct business in the State House, he said, “This is not something that’s pervasive, this is not something that’s day to day, and I hope people realize that.”

One pundit, however, said legislators will start feeling the pressure.

“Three convicted speakers in a row doesn’t look good, and they’re going to have to do something,” said John C. Berg, political professor at Suffolk University.
Why? Voters keep electing them, so what's the problem?
