    Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) related to steering federal funds to clients of the PMA Group, the now-closed defense lobbying firm.

    Profile from Who Runs Gov, a Washington Post site:

    Moran sits on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, which awards contracts and federal funds throughout the nation. By using his influence on the committee, Moran has secured millions for his northern Virginia district.

    Not reying to state the obvious here, but there are Congressmen who are not on the take. They don't own several properties and probably no Virgin Island. The Lobbyists only offer the money. It takes crook to accept it.

    If you outlaw lobbyists, the crooks will still be crooked, still be on the take and still be a national disgrace.

    Serious penalties for accepting the money is how to stop it. Penalize the crooks that claim to be something else. Everyone knows the lobbyists are snakes. It's the snakes that pretend to be something else that need to vivisected.

    Exactly.

    Yet the board remains quiet, while allegations against Jan Brewer bloom in at least 6 seperate threads while Cons defend the innocent.

    Of course you can. write a letter or send an e-mail. Same for everybody. Let the representatives decide what is important based on their constituency. No gifts. No money. Nobody cuts to the front of the line. One letter/e-mail per day maximum. Break the rule..go to the back of the line. Corporations want the status of a person? Fine! Same rules apply to you also.

    I have posted about Marcie Fudge, Samson. Not everyone is busy harping on Brewer.

    I dunno what the cure is for a lack of ethics in government. Most all of them seem to get VERY confused between "my money" and "OUR money". Just keep arresting the bastards.
