Ethics Smethics

The party of personal values continues to show everyone just how little they care about public values. "Two donors to U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader Tom DeLay's defense fund were named on Wednesday to the House ethics committee, which twice last year admonished the Texas Republican."

"(Speaker of the House Dennis) Hastert appointed to the panel Republican Reps. Lamar Smith of Texas and Tom Cole of Oklahoma. Both have donated to a defense fund DeLay created in 2000 after Democrats filed a civil racketeering suit -- later dismissed with the agreement of both sides -- over his fund-raising network.

Smith donated $10,000 and Cole donated $5,000, according to the government-watchdog group Public Citizen."

It's easy to see how two gay people getting married will bring about the end of Western Civilization, but I guess buying your way onto the ethics committee is what...ethical? Oh those wacky Republicans.
