    Top Democrat on the House ethics committee, Alan Mollohan, steps down

    The top Democrat on the House ethics committee, Alan Mollohan, will leave the panel _ at least temporarily _ while he defends his own financial conduct, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday.

    The Wall Street Journal reported two weeks ago that Mollohan steered millions of dollars to nonprofit groups in his district _ with much of the money going to organizations run by people who contribute to the lawmaker's campaigns.

    Ethics in congress? Isn't that an oxymoron?

    And what is the cause of this problem again? Special interests.

    Why wasn't this reported on the front page of every major newspaper and on every TV news station? Why wasn't this covered ad nauseaum on all the AM network news programs?

    The Liberal bias lives on....

    It was covered if you watch the news. I mean unless of course you think every newspaper, radio station and television station is in on the conspiracy to cover up anything anti Democratic.

    I agree Megs but there will always be offers... what we need are some representatives that are honest, that believe America should come first. I hope the axe gets swung around and around and cleans out the crooks completely.
