Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren, engineer of the Colbert Congress, made the announcement.

Via USA Today:

Ethics trials for two veteran Democrats will be held after midterm elections for Congress, the House ethics committee has just announced.

The hearing for Rep. Charles Rangel, D-NY., accused of 13 violations of House rules, will be held Nov. 15, the first day of Congress’ lame-duck session following the Nov. 2 election. The trial of Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is slated for Nov. 29.

The announcement by Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., who chairs the ethics panel, rejects a request by Republicans on the panel, who last week called for the public trials to be held before Nov. 2.

Like the Church Lady always said: How conveeeenient!

And in very related news, a fresh poll shows that voters aren’t buying what Speaker Mop and Glow is selling:

Most voters think Congress’s ethics have gotten worse in the past two years, according to a new poll in key battleground districts.

The finding suggests that people likely to have a big say in who controls the House in the next Congress believe that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has failed to keep her 2006 promise to “drain the swamp” of congressional corruption.

The Hill/ANGA 2010 Midterm Election Poll finds that 57 percent of likely voters in 12 competitive districts believe that the ethical situation on Capitol Hill has deteriorated since President Obama took office. Thirty-two percent of respondents say there has been no change, and only 7 percent claim it has improved.
