Perjury Charges for Public Officials who falsify official statements.

This petition had 36 supporters

Every elected or appointed government official must swear to an  Oath of Office. The Oath, itself, generally has no accountability provisions for misconduct. Adding the penalty of perjury for making a false official statement while in office to the existing Oath of Office, will promote truth in government and provide a basis for prosecution of misconduct by elected or appointed officials. Here is the Oath and addendum:

“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter and that, under penalty of perjury, all official statements made by me as part of my official duties, shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth".
