Democrats needs to get their heads out of thier . . .

If you want to lose the next Congressional election, go corrupt like the Republicans did for the last eight years. Most of the names on the ethics investigation list are Democrats. Shame of these greedy Democrats for being so stupid. 

The panel announced that it was probing two California Democrats — Reps. Maxine Waters and Laura Richardson — even as its embarrassed leaders took pains to explain that several other lawmakers also identified in the leaked confidential committee memo may have committed no wrongdoing.

The committee said it was investigating whether Waters used her influence to help a bank in which her husband owned stock, and whether the couple benefited as a result. Separately, the panel is looking into whether Richardson failed to disclose required information on her financial disclosure forms and received special treatment from a lender.

Ethics chairwoman Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., recently went to the House floor to announce that a confidential weekly report of the committee from July had leaked out in a case of "cyber-hacking."

The weekly reports include a summary of the committee's work at an earlier stage, when its members and staff scrutinize lawmakers to see whether an investigation is warranted.

The Washington Post reported in its online edition Thursday that the document was disclosed on a publicly accessible computer network.
The Post reported that almost half the members of the House Appropriations defense subcommittee were under scrutiny.

A prior ethics inquiry involves lawmakers who steered appropriations to clients of a now-defunct lobbying firm and received campaign contributions from the firm and its clients.

The names included three lawmakers previously identified in the inquiry: the chairman of the defense subcommittee, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa.; and Reps. Peter Visclosky, D-Ind., and James Moran, D-Va.

The Post said others whose names were in the report included Reps. Norm Dicks, D-Wash., Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, C.W. Bill Young, R-Fla., and Todd Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan.

This is a huge embarrassment to the Democratic Party. Rightardia has no sympathy for corrupt politicians regardless of party affiliation. We like the way the Chinese deal with corruption. China executes corrupt officials.
