Culture of Corruption

The DNC Chairman speaks:

"Today, the state of Texas is doing what the Republican-controlled federal government has failed repeatedly to do, which is hold Republicans in Washington accountable for their culture of corruption. This alleged illegal activity reaches to the highest levels of the Republican Party."

"With House Republican Leader Tom DeLay under criminal indictment, Senate Republican Leader Frist facing SEC and Department of Justice investigations, and White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove under investigation, the Republican leadership in Washington is now spending more time answering questions about ethical misconduct than doing the people's business."

"Tom DeLay is neither the beginning nor the end of the Washington Republicans' ethical problems. America can do better than leaders who use their power to promote their own personal interests instead of the interests of the American people who elected them. We simply must change the way business is done in Washington."
That last point is what we should emphasize in all this: corruption, cronyism and opportunism are endemic in the Bush Administration. DeLay and Frist barely begin to cover it.

Hopefully, the unraveling of Bush and company will make Republicans realize that their leaders' loyalties lie not in promoting their "conservative values" but in the pursuit of money and power.
