WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration and the new Congress are quickly handing over to Republicans the same “culture of corruption” issue that Democrats used so effectively against the GOP before coming to power.
Freshman Sen. Roland Burris, D-Ill., is only the latest embarrassment.
Senate Democrats accepted Burris because they believed what he told them: He was clean. Burris now admits he tried to raise money for Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who authorities say sought to sell President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat.
“The story seems to be changing day by day,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Wednesday.
The political mess for the Democratic Party, however, isn’t Burris’ conduct alone; it’s the pattern that has developed so quickly over the past few months.
Just like the Republicans who were voted out of power in 2006, the Democrats have been corrupted by mojo. They’d be smart to learn from that past history of the Republicans, the present day promises to lead “the most ethical Congress ever,” and from the threats of Republicans that if they retake power in Congress, they’re going to repeal the $800billion in spending as well as cut more Democratic Party pet projects.
