MSNBC - Donors to DeLay fund put on ethics panel


"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.
