Once again there is news that the “culture of corruption” in Washington is still around, despite the campaign promises of the Democrats. As a matter of fact, it would seem that another Democrat has been caught taking lobbyist money for political favors. Representative John Murtha (D – Pa.,) you know, the get out of Iraq now twit, has a long term deal with (gasp!) lobbyists for Defense Contractors to channel hard cash into his non-profit organization for special attention on legislation concerning their companies. Nonprofit Connects Murtha, Lobbyists
Not to worry though, I’m sure Nanny Pelosi, who seems to hate all things military, will make a concerted effort to get to the bottom of this evil. I suspect Murtha’s days in Congress are numbered. Of course, there is that tendency for our liberal politicians to ignore corruption by one of their own, President Clinton for instance, so the number of Murtha’s days may be quite large.
