Mollohan shows class

A so-called "government watchdog organization" made allegations against Rep. Mollohan of West Virginia. Georgia10 has the details on how partisan the group is. The group has refused to release a 500-page report it claims supports it's allegations despite being asked to do so by Mollohan, his Republican opponent, the press and others. The word going around is the group refuses to release the report because it turns out the allegations are baseless. However, Mollohan showed class and has temporarily stepped down from his role as ranking member of the ethics committee. Unlike the rubber stamp Republicans in Congress who have turned a blind eye to ethics violations and criminal acts by their colleagues tied to Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay ::cough Shelley Moore Capito cough::, Mollohan, as Georgia10 nicely puts it, put the greater good above himself.
