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. http://houseofscandal.org/members/Shelley%20MooreCapitoWV-2.html
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."
