Now it seems the Democrats have stripped the provision requiring former members of Congress to wait two years before lobbying.
Again, I think this is stupid to have to impose a post-employment restriction on Congressmen, but the Democrats said they would do it when they were running and are now breaking another promise.
Add that to the growing list: first, Dems were going to increase scrutiny of bundling of campaign checks, but that has gone by the wayside. I don't know if it has anything to do with Majority Leader Steny Hoyer's new Chief of Staff, but that guy sure knew how to get votes - just make a below interest loan as a lobbyist and gain a powerful ally in Congress.
The Democrats played the political game for 40 years while in charge and had all kinds of corruption problems. They even have corruption problems now they aren't dealing with (see William Jefferson, Nancy Pelosi and Alan Mollohan).
Nancy Boyda's team suggested Jim Ryun was corrupt and that Republican leadership was corrupt last year. Her campaign theme was "Nothing Will Change Until We Change Congress." Either she was lying then or she's failing to live up to her campaign promises now, but if she was telling the truth, then she should return all the campaign contributions she received from Democrat leadership until they uphold their promise to pass the ethics reform they campaigned on.
Call Nancy Boyda's office and tell her to give back Democrat leadership money:
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
