A conflict of interest is when a CEO of the biggest oil drilling company and supplier to the U.S. military gets elected and uses
the Office of the Vice President to enrich the Oil Industry sit back
during a threat of war knowing the profits will be rolling in if we let
war just happen. Do everything to eliminate taxes,lawsuits and
make all your Country Club friends rich by fleecing the Federal
Government and putting it in an economic CRASH should be
against the law were is the Inspector General in Washington?

The House Ethics Panel should look at all the money the members of congress recieved from the UAW which ended up on top of the Chrysler and GM deals while the investors got the royal screwing of their lives.

Or perhaps the Ethics Panel should examine all the money the members received from the banks and how the banks got all of that bailoout money.

Panel should examine the relationship of Rep. Barney Frank and Fannie may and Freddie Mac.

Panel should examine the relationship of it's members especially the democrats and ACORN and all of the money they receive from ACORN.

The ethics panel in the Senate should examine all ofthe money Se. Dodd received from AIG and then he puts clause into the stimulus bill to allow theAIG bonuses.

I agree. There might have been a day when that actually meant something.
