Congressional Black Caucus Members Try To Quash Ethics Office

It seems as if the corrupt don't want to be found out:

Stung by a series of inquiries, nearly half the members of the Congressional Black Caucus want to scale back the aggressive ethics procedures that Democrats trumpeted after gaining control of Congress.

Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, and 19 fellow black lawmakers in the all-Democratic caucus quietly introduced a resolution last week that would restrict the powers of the new independent Office of Congressional Ethics. The office, formed by Congress in 2008, is run by a panel of private citizens.

If I were a prosecutor, the list of co-sponsors for this bill would get more than their fair share of attention. Could they proclaim any louder that they have something to hide?

Stunning that the lefties ignored this story. Apparently they have no problem with corruption -- when the corrupt vote their way.
