WILL STEVENS STEP DOWN FROM HIS COMMITTEES? NOT LIKELY

>

Taxpayers for Common Sense sent Miss McConnell (R-KY) a letter urging him to ask Stevens to step away from his Senate committee assignments until the FBI/IRS investigation of his criminal conduct is finished. There's no chance McConnell will ask and no chance Stevens would do any such thing. He's on the Appropriations Committee, the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, the Rules and Administration and Joint Library Committee.

In the interests of bipartisanship DWT has sent Miss McConnell a compromise proposal. Stevens should only be forced to step down from the committees he directly used to enhance his bribery scams. The $30 or so million he was able to funnel to VECO, for example, didn't have anything whatsoever to do with the Joint Library Committee. He should step down from the Appropriations Committee and Commerce Committee, allowed to stay on the Library Committee. A panel should be set up to investigate whether or not Stevens used the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to defraud the taxpayers or not and report back in no more than 90 days at which time it can be decided if he should step down from that committee too. I haven't heard back from Miss McConnell but I ran it by Matt Stoller and he said "it sounds fair."

It still amazes me that republican voters continue to lie to themselves about who they've put into office. They lie to themselves, they lie to cover lies, they lie about lies that they tell, they lie and they know it.
You know why they lie? They lie because all they care about is Roe V. Wade. It makes them appear more manly to their wives I guess. But their immorality and ethics challenged personalities are easy to spot. They always have been. It's just that their voters are comfortable looking the other way, so long as abortion remains an issue and so long as science and progress are stifled. Immorality means nothing to right wingers. Their stand on abortion is probably as weak as their hypocrisy on family values. These old men are rotten to the core.
