On Corruption

November 14, 2006

Note: I wrote this during Download 2006, but I apparently just saved it instead of published it. Oops!

I heard Owen say – twice! – that Republican US house leadership was corrupt and that he’s thanking God that they’re gone.

Fair enough. No argument from me. But I don’t recall him saying this before the election.

To be fair, however, I heard Jay and Seth both say that Doyle sold state contracts. I have heard Jay talk about Doyle being corrupt before, but this may have been in a private conversation. I don’t remember if he’s ever questioned Doyle’s ethics publicly.

  1. Just for balance, corruption is bi-partisan as noted from this NewsMax.com story:

    “Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) questioned soon-to-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, D-Calif., commitment to eradicating corruption with her endorsement of one of the most unethical members in Congress, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., to be majority meader of the House of Representatives.

    Murtha was listed in CREW’s report, “Beyond DeLay: The 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress (and five to watch).” As reported in the study and by the news media, Murtha has been involved in a number of pay-to-play schemes involving former staffers and his brother, Robert “Kit” Murtha. ”

    There are corrupt members on both sides of the isle and they should all be out of Congress.


  2. One more just to make the point:

    From Brian Ross of ABC News

    “As convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to federal prison today, a source close to the investigation surrounding his activities told ABC News that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was one of the members of Congress Abramoff had allegedly implicated in his cooperation with federal prosecutors.”

  3. Sure, but the point here is that it’s funny when someone like Owen or Jay back their guy 100% until after the election – at which time they will candidly admit that their man is corrupt.
