Democrat hypocrites scramble to cover their own ethics problems

Now that Tom DeLay is under attack in the press (while any actual hearings are stalled) Democrats in Congress are realizing that under the same standards, most of them could be just as equally tarnished.

...aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had not reported a 2004 trip to South Korea until a Washington Post reporter asked her office about it. Eddie Charmaine Manansala, Pelosi's special assistant on East Asian affairs, filed a disclosure form for the $9,087 trip a few hours after the newspaper's inquiry and sent a note to the ethics committee saying, "I did not know I was supposed to file these forms and I apologize for its lateness."

Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) even asked the ethics committee to investigate him after a reporter for the newspaper Roll Call pointed out that a travel disclosure form from 2001 listed the lobbying firm Rooney Group International as paying for a $1,782 trip to Boston, which would be a violation of House rules....

Yesterday, an aide to Rep. Ruben Hinojosa (D-Tex.) filed a report saying she had not reported an $800 trip to Austin in January "due to pressing House business."

Rather than back off of the silly accusations being made against DeLay, democrats are gambling that they can clean up their own problems and the MSM will help cover-up the fact that they are trying to have it both ways.
