And we wonder why corporate leaders have trouble behaving…

The New York Times says the House has overturned questionable new ethics rules set by Republican leaders–some believe to shield one of their members DeLay from inquiries about his practices.

Democrats “applauded the backtracking, which represented a significant political embarrassment for a majority accustomed to winning almost all of its fights. It was the second time in recent months that Republicans had to back off such a change; in January, House Republicans restored a rule prohibiting their leaders from staying in their posts if indicted.”

Oh, yeah. So amazing that corporate America plays fast and loose with ethics. What is Congress except, in many ways, another bastion of coprorate-like privilege that encourages winking at the rules. Power does it–been doing it for eons.
