who would think?

A Republican representative was taking bribes to award defence contracts, has been forced to resign, and is now facing a number of criminal charges.

This is such a surprise, given that the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, Bill Frist is under investigation for profiting from a conflict of interest, and that the former leader of the Republicans in the Congress, Tom Delay was forced to resign because he has been charged with a number of felonies, including money laundering (Delay’s former spokesman also pleaded guilty to bribery last week). And this is all on top of the Vice President’s former chief of staff being charged with perjury and the senior political advisor to the White House still being under investigation in the same case.

US politics is so fun.
