Top 10 Scandals

It's that time of the year, when everybody has their top 10 lists. Here's CREW's Top 10 ethics scandals of 2007.

No new enforcement mechanisms for congressional ethics;

Ted Stevens still sitting on Senate Appropriations;

Senate Ethics Committee looking into Sen. Craig, but not Sen. Vitter;

Millions of missing White House emails still unaccounted for;

Rep. Murtha’s abuse of the earmarking process remains unchecked;

Lurita Doan remains chief of GSA despite illegal conduct;

White House covering up its role in the firings of the U.S. Attorneys;

No Child Left Behind funds directed to Bush fundraisers who provide inadequate reading materials for kids;

Court decision regarding search of Jefferson’s office limits ability of DOJ to investigate other corrupt lawmakers; and

FEMA knowingly let Katrina victims live in hazardous trailers

I'm not sure that I agree with all of the list, but it's a good start.

Scandals? Republicans? It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

Where to begin? Oh, where to begin?

Begin at the beginning, and go from there.

Would that be with the illegal voter practices of the first term?

Very deep sigh.
