Jeb does the wrong thing, volume XXVIII

Increasingly, it look s as though Jeb Bradley is physically incapable of doing the right thing when it comes to the ethics process.

Jeb's latest screw-up involves staffing for the House Ethics Committee. For nearly four decades, the Ethics Committee has had a non-partisan staff. This way, research and administration could be conducted in a manner that put the integrity of the democratic process above party gamesmanship.

Jeb decided that the needs of the Republican leadership are more important than an independent ethics committee. He blindly went along with a measure that would replace nonpartisan staff with partisan operatives beholden to the likes of Tom DeLay.

Our friend from Wolfeboro likes to tell people he is an independent-minded congressman; the facts show that this claim is utter nonsense.
