Culture of Corruption

The next step in the investigation of... someone. The New York Times says it's Bill Jefferson.

From the Congressional perspective, the FBI and DoJ are being agressive in their investigations of Congressional ethics. There's concern that the Executive Branch not get too heavy-handed in its dealings with the Legislative Branch. Up to now of course, the House has guarded its own internal ethics process so jealously that they have refused to create even a quasi-independent ethics review body, for fear of letting the ethics process get out of control. I guess the Executive Branch is showing it never was in their control.

Back to the top.
