    WASHINGTON -- When Rep. Barney Frank was looking to aid a Boston-based lender last fall, the Massachusetts Democrat urged Maxine Waters, a colleague on the House Financial Services Committee, to "stay out of it," he says.

    The reason: Ms. Waters, a longtime congresswoman from California, had close ties to the minority-owned institution, OneUnited Bank.

    If Barney was aware of this why did he do nothing. Again I say some hard questions need to be asked to Frank, and now concerning Rep. Waters.

    The dems seem to get a free pass with ethics. I think their excuse is, "It's Expected."

    You beat me to it.

    This is status quo. Waters, Rangel, Blago, and a few more I imagine.

    We can't forget Burris and in the last congress didn't we learn something about leader Reid and those land deals? Just to add to the discussion.

    Don't forget Jefferson and the freezer money...I think they're still investigating that.

    I think that's bullshit. You're not a dem, so until a dem says that, it's only your opinion.

    As to crooked rebubs, get a life.

    Anyone who has broken the law should be punished.

    Please, get some fresh shit for these threads.

    Seems the republicans do get rid of the offenders in their party. The dems accept excuses like, "It was just sloppy handling", or "It was an honest mistake", or 'The tax code is just too convoluted", or "It was an oversight". Come on, Ray...
