CLC Taking On Smith Bribery Case

I got a nice e-mail yesterday from Mark Glaze, the Associate Counsel and Director of Public Affairs at the Campaign Legal Center, who reads this blog (who knew?), to tell me that they had seen my previous item on the attempt by unnamed House Republicans to bribe Rep. Nick Smith into supporting the recently passed Medicare bill, and they are now pushing the Justice Department and the House Ethics Committee to look into the matter.

And people say blogs don’t have any impact!

Kudos to Mark and the CLC for fighting the good fight — it’s a tough job, but I’m glad somebody’s there to do it.
