Ethics, Shmethics

December 13th, 2007at 06:53pm Posted by Eli

I just love this story:

Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) filed a Federal Election Commission (FEC) advisory opinion request on November 15, 2007 asking for permission to use campaign funds to pay both his and his staff’s legal fees resulting from a Senate Ethics Committee investigation initiated as a result of a Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) complaint. CREW’s complaint, filed on March 5, 2007, asked that the Ethics Committee investigate whether Domenici violated Senate Rules by contacting the U.S. Attorney in Albuquerque, New Mexico, David C. Iglesias, and pressuring him about an ongoing corruption probe.

So, basically, he wants to commit an ethics violation to defend himself against charges of… committing an ethics violation. Brilliant!
