I really am asking this because I am genuinely confused…
Just what is “ethics” in Congress???.
Everytime one of these “ethics” violations comes up (Tom Delay is currently in the crosshairs), I’m unclear about what is “ethical” in Congress and what is “unethical”.
Is it that you lied and got caught?
Is it that you lied to someone powerful and they got pissed off?
Is it that outsmarted another member of Congress and they got pissed?
Did you forget to give someone across the aisle a “reach around?”
(Sorry…couldn’t help that last one…but it was SOOooo, easy!)
Seriously, guys…what is the “line” that gets crossed between “ethical” and “unethical” behavior in Congress?
