Now this is why I am mad at republicans. They are stupid, yellow bellied, weak kneed POS (that's plural) who let this languish for all these years.

If this had been a republican, you can bet the demoKaRatz would have had his head on a spike and he would have been gone and in prison.

Why are republicans so WEEEEEAAAAAAKKKKK!

McDermott, in an e-mail to The Associated Press, said he was pleased the ethics panel had concluded he did not violate overall House rules.

He did violate the ECPA. But that's just a federal law, obviously meant for commoners, not the House of Lords.

Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., violated ethics standards by giving reporters access to an illegally taped telephone call involving Republican leaders a decade ago, the House ethics committee said Monday.

A decade ago? These guys are right on top of things. Very inspriring.

"The ethics complaint stems from a tape recording made by a Florida couple, who gave it to McDermott in January 1997."

It amazes me that anyone still believes this part of the story.

These are the actions of a defeated and cowering Republican party. They know that the Democrats are coming in with the slime-maching on full power. ANY dissent will be met with an all-out sliming in the press and in the committee rooms.

The Republicans have already dropped the white flag and are running for cover.

McDermott has distinguished himself by acting like a snake in the grass - no offense intended to snakes.

He said he might change his long-standing support for an internal ethics panel and consider replacing it with an independent inspector general to investigate House members

Ethics is the province of honest men and seldom visited upon the likes of Congress.

It took 10 years for the Ethics Committee to say Jimbo screwed up with no further action recommended. What a farce!
