Another Year, Another Billion Dollars Stolen Here or There

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics group has released its list of the top 10 ethics violators of 2007. This year's "winners" (their winnings has made the rest of us losers):
  • No new enforcement mechanisms for congressional ethics
  • Ted Stevens still sitting on Senate Appropriations
  • Senate Ethics Committee looking into Sen. Craig, but not Sen. Vitter
  • Millions of missing White House emails still unaccounted for
  • Rep. Murtha’s abuse of the earmarking process remains unchecked
  • Lurita Doan remains chief of GSA despite illegal conduct
  • White House covering up its role in the firings of the U.S. Attorneys
  • No Child Left Behind funds directed to Bush fundraisers who provide inadequate reading materials for kids
  • Court decision regarding search of Jefferson’s office limits ability of DOJ to investigate other corrupt lawmakers; and
  • FEMA knowingly let Katrina victims live in hazardous trailers
The list seems to have been put together before the latest bit of fun from Bush & Co., the destroyed torture tapes. But then again, given this administration, limiting ethics violations list to only 10 must have been pretty hard. Check out the page link at the beginning of this post for more information on each of the "winners."

Great minds, LP. :-)

The difficulty with compiling lists of Bush Reich scandals is, by they time the list is finished, it's obsolete.

I guess depending on whom the next President will be along with the new House and Senate. Maybe this man might have to answer some of the questions he is able to block now by being President.

That is another penny of our tax dollars that might be spent on Bush, even when he is out of office. I think it just might be well worth it!

Try Top 100! I'm glad the list is bipartisan. Dems do not have rosy records, either.
The top bit of unethical behavior was Bush running for president, when he had to have known in his heart that he would never be up to the job. Ugh!
On a lighter note, hope your holidays are going well, lapopessa. Regards from a longtime reader, Carol
