You know? I sometimes feel the CoC (Culture of Corruption – the prevailing political climate in Ohio and beyond due to GOP control) label gets a bit tired. I know my friends on the right wish it would just go away. But they make it so easy sometimes! Latest is John Boehner, minority leader in the house. John is covering for a corrupt official, Ken Calvert, who replaced some other corrupt official on the Appropriations Committee. They just cycle ’em around once the dirty laundry hits the air. Think Progress has the scoop.
So why is John Boehner supporting someone with questionable ethics background serving on Appropriations? Because “geographic balance” is more important than ethics. Don’t think this is just a lefty smear. Redstate.org seems pretty miffed as well.
