It would sure be nice to have our party actually live up to the standards we set in 2006. I realize that our promises to be ethical and better than the Republicans were political, but can't we at least put forward a good effort?
Top four scandal/ethics problems from the Democrats in the 11oth Congress:
4. Charlie Rangel - N.Y. Chairman of Ways and Means invited scrutiny3
3. Chris Dodd - reportedly received special treatment from people he is regulating
2. William Jefferson - Lousiana congressman who is charged with 16 count indictment
1. Tim Mahoney - Florida Democrat who succeeded Republican Representative Mark Foley
