Congressional ethics 101

Ran across an article over breakfast and I can't resist commenting. The New York Times reports that House Speaker Dennis Hastert, apparently concerned about Capitol Hill's (and his GOP's) image in the  wake of several investigations into and indictments of Members and associates, has broached the subject of new ethics training for lawmakers. He wants to make sure they understand the "nuances of House rules." Nuances? Let's see. Bribery = Wrong! Money laundering = Wrong! Creating tax breaks for generous PAC contributors = Wr Standard operating procedure.
