Rep. Issa's To-Do List

A bit of follow-up to yesterday's post. Several commenters suggested that Congressman Issa should get a pass on his retreat from the Sestak issue because he has bigger fish to fry.

Is this what you had in mind?

Rep. Darrell Issa is aiming to launch investigations on everything from WikiLeaks to Fannie Mae to corruption in Afghanistan in the first few months of what promises to be a high profile chairmanship of the top oversight committee in Congress.

According to an outline of the committee’s hearing topics obtained by POLITICO, the House Oversight and Government Reform is also planning to investigate how regulation impacts job creation, the role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the foreclosure crisis; recalls at the Food and Drug Administration and the failure of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission to agree on the causes of the market meltdown.

The to-do list is: "1. Impact of regulation on job creation ... 2. Fannie/Freddie & the Foreclosure Crisis ... 3. Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the failure to identify origins of the financial crisis ... 4. Combating corruption in Afghanistan ... 5. WikiLeaks ... 6. FDA/Food & Drug Safety."

Notable omissions: Sestak bribery probe. AG Holder and the voter intimidation case. The stimulus spending and mismanagement. Pigford II. The GM dealerships kerfuffle.
