Just to add to Todd's "duhhhh" response (which is right on IMHO),
you can configure syslog to send sudo events to a remote server
which you have secured. Of course the admin on the original 
machine could tweek syslogd ... but anyone who think sudo itself
is insecure because of how it properly works probably doesn't 
know enough about syslog to realize what to do there!    ;-)
