Ethics, By The Book


Tom DeLay, defending his years of finding ways he believed to be legal to, well, allow people to purchase influence in Washington, asserts,
During my time in Congress, I have always acted in an ethical manner within the rules of our body and the laws of our land. I am fully confident time will bear this out.
Doesn't it give you a warm, fuzzy feeling that Tom DeLay has no sense of ethics other than those which are explicitly imposed upon him by committee rules or legislation? If it's not clearly codified as unethical or if you can find wiggle room in the language of the rule or statute, it must be ethical. Right?

  1. It's amazing how quick these guys sound like ACLU true believers once they come under the microscope, isn't it?

  2. It's amazing to me that neither one of you pointed out that the "rules" and "laws" to which he refers were made by an institution he ran . . .
