Shelley Moore Capito: a DeLay Republican

DeLay and corrupt Beltway politics go hand in hand with Shelley Moore Capito. Sadly for West Virginia, she's tied more closely to him than she is to serving her constituents. From Drema Dems:

The Ethics Committee that Has No Ethics: After gutting the ethics rules to protect their abuses of power, House Republicans have refused to reform the ethics committee. Will the ethically challenged Republican leadership agree to the most basic, fair ground rules before calling a meeting? When will the Republicans stop protecting Tom DeLay? And our own Shelly Moore Capito is all but aiding and abetting while remaining still mute on Social Security despite overwhelming public opinion against privatization.

Both Democrats and Republicans are speaking out about the lack of a credible Ethics Committee process. Rep. Joel Hefley (R-CO.) and Rep. Alan B. Mollohan [D-WV] wrote in the Washington Post: "There should be no misunderstanding of what is at stake here... all members will need to decide whether they wish to continue to have a credible, effective ethics process."

For more examples of the Republican legacy of deception, divisiveness and debt go to

Of course she is a Delay Republican she is the second highest on his pacs donation list. I think the numbers is somewhere around $37,000 for the last campaign. That type of payment will buy an awful lot of loyalty. She is now known as Corporate Capito with her voting record consistently backing multinational corporations and not the people of her home district. We could also call her Shelley Moore-Pollution since she consistently votes for tax breaks for the oil industry. Why does the Republican dominated congress not back CONSERVATION of the land only conservation of the riches wallots?
