Ethics Committee DELAYED!

Now this is one hell of a line up! I know if I were accused of ethics violations I would definitely want this kind of line up to judge me. This would be like taking all of Saddam's henchmen and appointing them to the International Court of Justice and then asking them to conduct a trial of Saddam for crimes against humanity. What do you think the outcome would be? I'm not a betting man but looking at this line up I would bet radical, judge terrorist, Bible-humping, ethically challenged Tom DeLay has a fairly good chance of walking.

Re-pubic-ans of the Ethics Committee

Doc Hastings, Washington, Chairman

Doc Hastings has taken $5,930 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. No surprise that Hastings voted with Tom DeLay 96% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005.

Judy Biggert, Illinois

Judy Biggert has taken $1,764 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. No surprise that Biggert voted with Tom DeLay 92% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005.

Tom Cole, Oklahoma

Tom Cole has taken $15,000 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. No surprise that Cole voted with Tom DeLay 95% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005.

You mean ::gasp:: the ethics committee is a joke? Considering the previous committee was punished because they admonished Tom DeLay last year, I think the Republican leadership and Tom DeLay is covering their asses!

Those people are completely rotten to the core. How do they sleep at night?

With all the money they steal they probably have really nice beds.
