From the most ethical Congress ever, yet another investigation into Democrat cronyism. Sister, sister (via Roll Call):
The House ethics committee is reviewing whether the chamber’s rules were broken when Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.) put three of Rep. Loretta Sanchez’s (D-Calif.) aides on her own payroll in late 2006 because of a budget shortfall in her sister’s office.
The shortfall, as the OC Register reported, was caused by one of Loretta’s aides, who used the congresswoman’s credit card to embezzle funds for pizza, groceries, and cab fare. Members cannot pay aides to work for offices other than their own, the paper notes.
Fun fact: The Sanchez sisters published a book together on how they have changed the way the Washington old boys’ network is run. The book features a forward by corruptocrat Nancy Pelosi. Cronies in skirts are still cronies.
The more things change…
