During a public relations campaign touting upcoming probes of the Obama Administration, the new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said the president wont be investigated for a bribery scandal because his party is guilty of the same crime.
This astounding example of bipartisan corruption was actually delivered on national television over the weekend. California Republican Darrell Issa, the federal lawmaker responsible for scrutinizing presidential misconduct, did the Sunday talk-show rounds to promote a wasteful spending inquiry of one of the most corrupt administrations, and assure Americans that his committee will identify $200 billion in waste. In the process, Issa confirmed that hell let President Obama slide on one of his most serious offenses so far.
