    Yup one Republican Senator versus 7 Democratic Representatives. Sounds proportional to me.

    And then of course we have the whole, Democrats trying to find ways OUT of punishing their members while the Republicans try and get their bad seeds to resign.

    Yup yup, exactly the same indeed.

    California Rep. Waters may face fall ethics trial

    ^Conveniently missing from the Headline?... Party Affiliation.

    :clap2:

    News-Leader.com | News From The Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A second House Democrat, Rep. Maxine Waters of California, could face an ethics trial this fall, further complicating the election outlook for the party as it battles to retain its majority.

    People familiar with the investigation, who were not authorized to be quoted about charges before they are made public, say the allegations could be announced next week. The House ethics committee declined Friday to make any public statement on the matter.

    Waters, 71, has been under investigation for a possible conflict of interest involving a bank that was seeking federal aid. Her husband owned stock in the bank and had served on its board.

    New York Democrat Rep. Charles Rangel also faces an ethics trial this fall on charges that include failure to disclose assets and income, nonpayment of taxes and doing legislative favors for donors to a college center named after him.

    ---

    Compare and Contrast this with what the AP was doing to the REPUBLICans in 2006...

    Mark Foley (R) and some Preacher in Colorado Springs...

    Neither was EVER Charged with a Crime, but the AP and it's Children were CERTAIN to keep them in the Headlines and do as much Damage as Possible to the GOP...

    And of course almost NO Americans know who William Jefferson (D) is.

    I am going to have to go search some of those Stories again and see.

    :)

    peace...

    Ethics panel to charge California Rep. Maxine Waters

    Democrat, Rep. Maxine Waters of California, has been under investigation for a possible conflict of interest involving a bank that was seeking federal aid. Her husband owned stock in the bank and had served on its board. Waters came under scrutiny after former Treasury Department officials said she helped arrange a meeting between regulators and executives at Boston-based OneUnited Bank without mentioning her husband's financial ties to the institution. Her husband, Sidney Williams, held at least $250,000 in the bank's stock and previously had served on its board.
