Incoming House Judiciary Committee Chair John Conyers admits to ethics violations

Posted by: ST on December 31, 2006 at 10:17 am

And in turn, the House Ethics Committee punishes him by issuing a statement that essentially says that Rep. Conyers, who is also a proponent of impeaching President Bush, should refrain from doing it again.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who promised before and after the elections that the Democratic Congress would be the “most ethical Congress in history”, said through a spokesman that Rep. Conyers will “remain chairman of the Judiciary Committee.”

So much for your promises, eh, Rep. Pelosi?

      Are we really surprised?

      The press has been so busy going after Bush they have overlooked the democrats wonderful “ethics”. The democrats have figured out that they have a free pass for the next two years. If the American people don’t know about out, how can they be outraged, right?

      This country is in very serious trouble. Not just because of the democrats, but because of all our politicians in general. It has become a game of “who can get the power” rather than serving the American people. :(

      Most ethical congress, most ethical administration what’s the diff. Apparently nothing at all. A promise from a Dem is as useless as teets on a bull. :o) – Lorica
