Champagne Monday Linkfest: Conyers Pops The Cork

And a Happy New Year's to all! It's the first Monday of the year, and John Conyers is busting out the champagne, rather then the beer

Why champagne? From The Hill

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has "accepted responsibility" for possibly violating House rules by requiring his official staff to perform campaign-related work, according to a statement quietly released by the House ethics committee late Friday evening.

The top Republican and Democratic members on the ethics panel, Reps. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) and Howard Berman (D-Calif.), said in a statement that Conyers acknowledged a "lack of clarity" in communicating what was expected of his official staff and that he accepted responsibility for his actions.

"[Conyers] agreed to take a number of additional, significant steps to ensure that his office complies with all rules and standards regarding campaign and personal work by congressional staff," they stated. "We have concluded that this matter should be resolved through the issuance of this public statement."

John Conyers, the guy who has been calling for Bush's impeachment, violates ethics laws, but, he recieves the champagne because he has apparently gotten away with it. The report was released quietly so no one would notice, and the Big Media is not covering this. Nancy Pelosi plans on doing zip, as Conyers will retain his chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee.

    He reflects his constituency, unfortunately. The Democrats are vastly more corrupt that the one who sent an email to an 18 year old.
