Ethics Committee – Guardian Of Our Law Makers?

Posted by italco on February 27, 2010

The House ethics committee ruled Friday that seven lawmakers who steered hundreds of millions of dollars in largely no-bid contracts to clients of a lobbying firm had not violated any rules or laws by also collecting large campaign donations from those contractors. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/26/AR2010022602864.html?wpisrc=nl_headline

The Law Maker becomes the guardian of industry and their Ethics Committee’s become guardians of the Law Makers.

Who is the guardian of the citizen?

I always believed it was suppose to be the representatives we voted into office.

They all seem to be bought and paid for and shifted their loyalty to the industry.

It is time to change that!!
