Senate "Ethics" Committee Clears Dodd and Conrad


Urban, I think.

After a year-long investigation, the committee told Dodd and Conrad that it found "no substantial credible evidence" that they had violated the Senate's ethics rules. The committee found that the senators' loans were processed through a special, controversial program, but that they did not appear to profit financially from it.

They were admonished though, to take extra special care to avoid the appearance of impropriety in future financial dealings which personally benefit them even though we the Senate Ethics Committee can find no evidence you actually did personally benefit by not paying what everybody else in the damned country pays for a mortgage.

So that's satisfying.

Ethics. These are not what you thought they were at all.
