Democrat's Vote to Condone Murtha's Ethics Violation

Posted: May 22, 2007 6:26 PM
I just returned from the floor of the House where Speaker Pelosi and nearly all the Democrats officially voted to cover up Rep. Murtha's ethics violation and shield him from an official reprimand. It's important to note that this entire incident has been substantiated by witnesses and not denied by Murtha. This is a clear violation of House Ethics Rules and general decorum. There is no legitimate justification for not supporting a formal reprimand.
