I am hoping that Elton Gallegly makes ethics reform a part of his platform this year. The House of Representatives needs some serious help.
Rep. Bob Ney of Ohio is scheduled to plead guilty to criminal charges. He might end up in prison making him the second member of the house to be locked up. He wasn't running for reelection but part of me wonders how he got this far in his party? Why won't members of the house stand up against one another when there is corruption. Nothing erodes faith in government like corruption regardless of party.
Hopefully Gallegly will speak out on this criminal. If not this time, he will most likely get another chance as I doubt this is the last person who should be wearing handcuffs in The Republican Lobbyist Scandal.
If the Democrats win back the House it will be because the House Republicans wouldn't clean up their own mess.
