Regressive Ethics in the House

It is said the President Bush was elected because of his moral values, yet Republican members of the House of Representatives have voted to renew suspected felon Tom DeLay as House majority leader and revoke a rule that said House leaders under criminal indictment would have to step down from their posts. The party is also making it more difficult for House members to file ethic complaints, and according to today's New York Times editorial: "Rumors also abound that come January, when the next Congress is seated, all five Republican members of the ethics committee, including its current chairman, Representative Joel Hefley, may be replaced."

I understand from reading the San Fran Examiner yesterday that Delay is trying to play Kangaroo Court and shift the blame to Pelosi.

Yes, he is pretty transparent. The charge against Pelosi has something to do with an illegal campaign contribution a few years ago, but it is nothing compared to all the money he has raised.
