State lawmakers are saddled with very few restrictions. Don't get caught with hookers, driving drunk, or driving drunk with hookers, for example. Don't egregiously break campaign fund-raising laws. That's another. The list of restrictions is so short, in fact, that it doesn't even include a requirement to actually do anything of use for your constituents.

On that short list, however, is the rule that you must live in the district that you represent.

It seems Ohio state Senator Shirley Smith might be in some trouble on that front thanks to Channel 3 and the one and only Investigator (TM).

Meyer's hidden cameras caught Smith living not in District 21, which is her territory and where she owns a house on Woodworth Avenue, but in South Euclid over in District 25.
