The Dems ran on something the culture of corruption. It was a cute refrain intended to exploit some Rep excesses.
Were some Reps corrupt? Yes.
Are the Dems virtuous? No.
The key is the US news media. Will they investigate the new crew. Let's hope so.
In the meantime, see How the Democrats "clean house" By Michelle Malkin.
Also, read John Murtha and Congress's "culture of corruption." by John Fund.
Last but not least, you have Senator Menendez in New Jersey under a cloud. Let's not forget Senator Reid, the new Majority Leader.
Abramoff has reportedly claimed the Nevada senator agreed to help him on matters related to Indian gambling. The Associated Press reported earlier this year that Reid wrote at least four letters helpful to the tribes that had contributed money to his campaign.”
This is all I ask: The news media should bring the same passion to investigate Democrats that they did to Mark Foley.
