Culture of Corruption - Congressman controlling FBI budget being investigated Culture of Corruption - Congressman controlling FBI budget being investigated

TPMmuckraker: Under FBI Scrutiny, Mollohan Runs up $160K Legal Bill. Alan Congressman Mollohan (D-WV) chairs the committee that oversees the Justice Department, has spent $160k lawyering up, $140k from his campaign. He has recused himself from FBI budget oversight for the present.

My normal rant is that the Democrats got control of Congress by yelling "Culture of Corruption" about the Republicans, and then turned out to be twice as bad themselves. But the Republicans seem to have their own problems here - with Reps. John Doolittle (R-CA) and Jerry Lewis (R-CA) also lawyering up, Lewis bigtime, having spent over $800k on lawyers.
