WV Dem steps aside from House Ethics post in response to allegations made by partisan group
The lovely and talented Georgia10 at Kos blogs "Mollohan Temporarily Steps Down" tackling the ethics allegations facing Rep. Allan Mollohan. This West Virginia Congressman is the ranking Democrat on the House Ethics Committee but he has temporarily stepped aside until the charges leveled at him can be resolved. The contrast between the ReThuglicans is significant as is the apparent partisanship of the National Legal & Policy Center. Right wing machine at work here as a 501(c)(3) that is clearly partisan. Beats me if Mollohan has been up to monkey business. If he has, then boot him for certain. Yet removing him immediately demonstrates some wise and right thinking. And given the corruption of the K Street GOP and the Bu$hCo cabal I'd not want to start down this road if I were Karl Rove. Peace ... or War!
