Most Transparent Congress Ever?

RedState’s Moe Lane updates his earlier post re Jeff Flake’s proposed inquiry into the shady dealings between numerous Congress folks and the PMA Group “a once-powerful lobbying force that has disintegrated in the wake of an FBI probe into fraudulent campaign donations to numerous members of Congress.”

The whole thing stinks to high heaven, and Flake (as usual – he’s awesome) is doing his best to bring it to light. This is the kind of thing that Republicans need to be trumpeting on any news program that will have them. Unfortunately, and as was entirely expected, House Democrats defeated Flake’s measure, effectively whitewashing their graft and corruption.

However, as Moe points out, at the very least the GOP was able to get 17 House Dems to join them on this (although 2 Repubs defected and 6 pulled an Obama, aka voted “present”). But again, this is exactly the kind of thing that:

A) the GOP needs to make sure they steer well clear of down the road; and
B) we need to make sure that the public hears about, both now and in 2010, 2012, etc.

The public needs to be made aware and reminded of the blatant disregard for the law that our elected “representatives” hold.
