Tom DeLay’s “Horse Blinders”

“The House ethics system has almost stopped functioning because public interest groups no longer can file complaints and party leaders have an informal agreement not to trigger new investigations, several organizations said yesterday.”
“Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said DeLay ‘has horse blinders on’ where ethical conduct is involved.”

For those of you who don’t know, Judicial Watch is about as conservative as they get, although this isn’t the first time they’ve gotten a bit peeved with this administration.

Yesterday they joined several other watchdog groups in quite publicly nailing the Republicans for their complete lack of interest in pursuing any of the vast array of ethics questions they’ve accumulated in these short few years.

Here is a picture of horse blinders.

Fitton’s best quote was not reported, but is available on their site.

“The party of small government has become the party of big corruption”
