Democrats Fight To Keep Abramoff Loophole

The Democrats campaign against the so-called "culture of corruption" during the 2006 campaign, despite its apparent effectiveness, was laughable and hypocritical. One issue they really hammered Republicans on was the Jack Abramoff scandal, which centered around Abramoff's abuses associated with Indian tribes.

So, Democrats take control of Congress, and promise to usher in a new era of open and honest government... So, what do they do? Well, on the 3rd vote of the 110th Congress, Senate Democrats voted nearly unanimously to kill Senator David Vitter's proposed amendment to the Lobby and Ethics Reform bill (a bill intended to clean up Washington) to close one of many Abramoff loopholes.

So, it comes as no surprise that the Democrats really have no interest in cleaning up Washington.

Anyone surprised?

I read the bill, and I read the amendment--It seems rather obvious to me that it's a good amendment although the sovereignty of Indians has always played a role in law making. I assume that the issue revolves around that---but let me look into it. If their are no sovernigty issues, then anyone who is against this amendment (democrats or republicans) is an enemy of reform and should be identified as one.
