Does Bob Corker Condone The Sick Behavior Of His Bloggers?

Okay, I have been around the blogosphere for over a year now and have yet to see anything as sick as what pro-Corker blogger, Nathan Moore, did today on his blogs.

Only a few days after Bob Corker himself said that this election will be about Congressman Ford and not his family, he has his henchmen out posting stuff like this (1, 2).

Shame on you Nathan, shame on you. That is just sick and down right wrong.

Tennesseans deserve better than this kind of behavior. However, is this really surprising coming from the supporters of a candidate with as many character flaws as Bob Corker?

Looks like Bill Frist was right back in 1994 when he referred to the Corker campaign as "rotten on the inside" and "pond scum." They sure are living up to those name right now.

218 Days

Days of Congressional Inaction on Ethics

Above is the number of days that have passed since Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to bribing Congressman.

It is also the number of days in which Congress has failed to pass an ethics reform bill that would limit private travel, ski and golf junkets, and would call for a full disclosure of expenses by lobbyists on members of Congress.

It is time for Congress to step up and pass an ethics reform bill that would do all of the above. In addition, it is time to end the pork barrel spending system as we know it and establish an independent ethics commission that would review ethics complaints against members of Congress.

I am proud Congressman Harold Ford Jr. is fighting for that reform!
