From Confederate Yankee comes this nice little news blurb that I thought I would share with our esteemed and talkative members...
It would seem, that members of the Democrat Black Caucus, after being stung one too many times, wants to severely curtail the powers and scope of the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Stung by a series of inquiries, nearly half the members of the Congressional Black Caucus want to scale back the aggressive ethics procedures that Democrats trumpeted after gaining control of Congress.
Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, and 19 fellow black lawmakers in the all-Democratic [ED: as opposed to undemocratic] caucus quietly introduced a resolution last week that would restrict the powers of the new independent Office of Congressional Ethics. The office, formed by Congress in 2008, is run by a panel of private citizens.
Might I also remind you that many members of the Democrat side of the House are members of the Socialist Caucus as well?
How ironic is this that this administration drove in to power on the claims of their intent on being the most honest, the most open, and the most transparent government. EVAH!
But, time and time again we see them skipping out on investigations, harrasing ethic commissioners, threatens district voters, keeping meetings closed, keeping town-hall meetings closed to all but SEIU members, implementing new laws and policies to invade privacy, ... I could go on and on.
