The model can be altered on five basic dimensions: probity of the accused; composition of the two voting bodies, system variables, and voting procedure. Representatives’ votes are determined by three different thresholds, depending on a representative’s nature (clean, corrupt, or tainted).

This model is associated with a publication:

Buttò, Michele, Carlos Pereira, and Matthew M. Taylor, "Sunshine or Shield?: Secret Voting Procedures and Legislative Accountability," under review at the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation.
