"Dozens" of House Members Under Ethics Probe

This is NOT good news for the Democrats as we head into the 2010 election cycle:
...the ethics panel publicly announced it is launching full investigation of Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Laura Richardson (D-CA). The Waters matter focuses on her alleged intervention to get bailout funds for a bank in which her husband held stock. Richardson allegedly failed to disclose real estate assets and got special treatment involving a foreclosure on her home.
If this story has legs, the bat-shit crazy populists on the right will have plenty of fodder to make the entirety of 2010 miserable for the Democrats.

What the fuck is it with these people and power!?
