How much does it cost to silence a member of Congress?

$35,000, apparently.

Rep. Richard Pombo, R-CA, has refused repeated calls by Rep. George Miller, D-CA, to investigate Jack Abramoff's dealings with Native American tribes and the lobbying he did on behalf of the Northern Marianas Islands. Pombo is the chair of the House Natural Resources Committee with sole jurisdiction. Meanwhile, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee has conducted detailed and almost thorough investigations -- one thing Senator John McCain won't do is investigate other members of Congress.

  • I want to see Richard Pombo, Steny Hoyer and his fat friend Ike Skelton all go down in flames.

    Get out the warrants and search the whole place....apparently bribery is a common element of this congress.

    Hardly any members are clean...
