Conyers (quietly) admits ethics violations


from The Hill:

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has “accepted responsibility” for possibly violating House rules by requiring his official staff to perform campaign-related work, according to a statement quietly released by the House ethics committee late Friday evening.

pelosi_jefferson.jpghastings.jpgpelosiconyers.jpg As much as Nancy Pelsosi wants us to believe that her regime will be as ethically pure as wind-driven snow, I think it’s a given that after not standing up for Black democrats in previous controversies, she really cannot afford to dump on Conyers. But the facts are stubborn things. Conyers should not become Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, since he has proven that he is incapable of following the rules of conduct.
