MSNBC - Donors to DeLay fund put on ethics panel

From MSNBC:

"Two donors to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's defense fund were named Wednesday to the House ethics committee, which twice last year admonished the Texas Republican.

In a shake-up of the bipartisan panel that critics called part of a purge and a 'shutdown' of ethics enforcement, Speaker Dennis Hastert, an Illinois Republican, also replaced the ethics chairman, Joel Hefley, a Colorado Republican, with Washington state Republican Doc Hastings, who was already on the panel."


About a month ago, I commended Rep. Hefley for taking a moral stand even though it meant opposing the party. Look at what happened to him. Good job, GOP, way to demonstrate leadership to the America-hating Democrats. All you right-wing pundits can take your posts about "moral leadership" and stick them in your ear.
