Looks like J.C. Hammer ... ummm ... Congressman Jim Clyburn ... can't help but inject race into ongoing ethics investigations at Capitol Hill:
Seriously, we think a real ethics investigation would likely snag dozens of Congressmen faster than Clyburn could say "you can't touch this". But before Clyburn wants to talk high-and-mighty about the ethics of public officials, maybe he should ask one of his employees who he hired right out of federal prison:
I don't see where anybody can make political hay out of this. Abramoff was stealing millions of dollars from Native Americans. This is nothing akin to that. [Rickenbacker] was not soliciting anything. He got caught in a sting. It's totally different.
It's always funny when the likes of Clyburn and Fowler do their best to pretend to be the pots calling the proverbial kettles ... well ... you know.
