More Bad News from the Most Ethical Congress Ever
When the Democrats took over congress two years ago, Nancy Pelosi promised that the Democrats would run the most ethical congress ever. Since then, we have seen Rep. William Jefferson’s freezer full of $100,000 in marked bribe money, special deals on mortgages to banking committee members, numerous tax issues for several congressmen and the administration, and several other potential ethical issues.
Over at Hotair, there is a post detailing some of the newest issues for Sen. Chris Dodd.
Accoding to a complaint by Judicial Watch, Dodd received a gift in exchange for working to reduce a tax issue charge and secured a presidential pardon.
This seems a straight-up quid pro quo. Dodd helped his apparently crooked friend and seems to have received a cut-rate real estate deal on a property in Ireland in exchange.
The “mainstream” media is all but ignoring this issue along with all of the other fact finding they should be doing.
One thing we must demand of our elected represenatives and leaders, both Democrat and Republican is ethical conduct. We also need to demand from our media unbiased reporting. When the former Alaskan Sen Ted Stephens received construction work for favors, it was all over the press and rightfully so. Judicial Watch filed this complaint in April and this is the first that Conservative Patriot HQ has heard of it and we pay attention.
If this is the most ethical congress ever, I hate to see the congress that came in second place.
