    So, all the ethics questions had NOTHING to do with this? Partisan hack much?

    Maybe so, but how did things turn out for Sen. Robert Byrd(D-WV) who's now 90+ years old, ill, and has spent more than half his life in the Senate? D'ya think they'll sink him, too? He voted yea for the health care reform act. My guess would be NO. He's gotten more pork for WV than they even have pigs.

    OBVIOUSLY, you are not paying attention to the spin.....this now has NOTHING to do with ethics. It is all about his vote on the Healthcare legislation....

    Byrd is a surviving relic of the civil rights era...a grand wizard in the KKK. He's a shining example of what the Democrat Party used to represent and what they are returning to this very day.
