CREW Blasts Pelosi Endorsement of Unethical Murtha for Majority Leader

Washington, DC - Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) questioned soon-to-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) commitment to eradicating corruption with her endorsement of one of the most unethical members in Congress, Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), to be Majority Leader of the House of Representatives.

Rep. Murtha was listed in CREW's report Beyond DeLay: The 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress (and five to watch). As reported in the study and by the news media, Rep, Murtha has been involved in a number of pay-to play schemes involving former staffers and his brother, Robert "Kit" Murtha.

Eight incumbents in CREW's report lost their races to ethics issues.

CREW's report can be found at http://www.beyonddelay.org/summaries/murtha.php.

Oops. Too bad Murtha is so popular with his ideas for Iraq.

I'd like to see more on this than just some web site - hell, I could do you a nice official web page that asserts all kinds of nasty things. An indictment, an official investigation, a complaint before the ethics committee, then we'll talk. Until then, who the fuck are these guys and why do they have some right to judge people guilty? The generally accepted organization of high regard in this area is Common Cause. This is what I got on their website: nothing. Type in Murtha in the search box and try it yourself.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

You would never consider posting rumors about folks, would you Kirk?

Yo, post all you want, and I will be glad to offer a counter opinion. I think that's allowed now that the Republicans got fired.
