Steny Hoyer Is a Crook, Too
Remember when Republicans ran Congress and everybody was so corrupt and then the midterms happened and the Democrats swept in with a bold plan to have ethics and all that? Well, they were just kidding.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has a great vacation planned for May: He's going to a fancy golf & beach resort in Puerto Rico where people get "sensually awakened." And he's taking a planeload of lobbyists ... enough to fill 137 luxury hotel suites. Doesn't that sound nice?
But unlike Tom DeLay's unethical golf trip to Scotland with Jack Abramoff, Steny's seaside lobbyist orgy is completely okay because the lobbyists aren't paying Hoyer himself -- they're paying Hoyer's PAC! Totally kosher!
