    what are the limits on your theory. suppose I‘m just secretary of the treasury, would I have to shut my hotel? What about if I‘m a famous Hollywood actor and people are trying to curry favor with me, can I not open up a restaurant? A sports athlete, a US senator? Suppose I‘m just the mayor or on city council?

    Sad to see such weak legal analysis, but not surprising from a bunch of academics driven by political bias and economic jealousy. Why not devote your time and the precious time of the courts to more meaningful conflicts; e.g., use your creative energy to unravel the obvious conflicts of interests at work in The Clinton Foundation. Hint: you could probably bring a civil suit and help support a criminal action -- use your law license to clean up that mess and protect the proper working of our government.
