The GOP now controls the United States House and Senate because they unveiled the popular Contract on America in 1994. The document was rooted in three core principles: Accountability, Responsibility and Opportunity. Sadly, the Republicans who won election based on this creed, have never missed and opportunity to be irresponsible and unaccountable. Here is the latest round of corruption from a party that disrespects the law and mocks the American people.
Corruption's Closet: Rep. "Duke" Cunningham pled guilty to accepting $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors. Over the years, Cunningham accepted a staggering list of gifts and sweetheart deals in exchange for his vote and influence. The Washington Blade's Chris Crane says, "what you won't read about in these mainstream press accounts is the other double life led by the closet case."
Mr. Christian Coalition In Trouble?: Three Texas watchdog groups asked a county official here Thursday to investigate Ralph Reed, former executive director of the Christian Coalition, who worked with the lobbyist Jack Abramoff to press state officials to shut down two Texas tribal casinos that were rivals of Abramoff clients.
Pentagon Plants Propaganda: The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee summoned top Pentagon officials to a closed-door session on Capitol Hill on Friday to explain a reported secret military campaign in Iraq to plant paid propaganda in the Iraqi news media.
Abramoff's Noose Tightens: With a federal corruption case intensifying, prosecutors investigating Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist, are examining whether he brokered lucrative jobs for Congressional aides at powerful lobbying firms in exchange for legislative favors.
Plame-Gate Continues: A conversation between Karl Rove's lawyer and a journalist for Time magazine led Mr. Rove to change his testimony last year to the grand jury in the C.I.A. leak case, people knowledgeable about the sequence of events said Thursday.
