From the "senators unclear on the concept" file

Last week, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee scuttled a proposal by Sen. Joe Lieberman and Sen. Susan Collins to create a independent office of public integrity. The new office would have been a good way to remove the ethics debate from the silly, hyper-partisan fever swamps known as the House and Senate ethics committees.

Unfortunately, too many people on both sides of the aisle have an unsettling comfort level with the current, broken system.

It's apparent that the only way that meaningful ethics reform is going to become a reality is by removing the get-along, go-along partisan drones (eg, our friend from Wolfeboro) who gum up the reform process.
