US - Democrat Leaves Ethics Panel

Will the left wing media go after Rep. Alan B. Mollohan (W.Va.) the way they went after DeLay?

Rep. Alan B. Mollohan (W.Va.) stepped down temporarily from his post as ranking Democrat on the House ethics committee, amid accusations that he used his congressional position to funnel money to his own home-state foundations, possibly enriching himself in the process.

As recently as Thursday, Mollohan, a 12-term lawmaker, had said he would not step aside, but he bowed to pressure yesterday from House Democratic leaders eager to pursue their campaign against what they call a "culture of corruption" in the Republican Party.

What about the "Culture of Treason" in the Democrat Party?

Look what the Post buried at the end of the story.

Republicans questioned why Pelosi turned to Rep. Howard L. Berman (Calif.) -- a lawmaker not currently on the ethics committee -- to take Mollohan's top Democratic spot on the panel.

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (Ohio), the next most senior Democrat on the committee, took a trip to Puerto Rico in 2001 that was financed by a lobbyist, an infraction that Republicans say links her to the lobbying scandals bedeviling some of their colleagues.
