    I read the article and it wasn't that damning of Jack Murtha and his nephew.

    Here's a quote from the article that you must have missed Star.

    "Rep. Murtha has been known for his skill at steering government money to defense contractors in his home state... but the Post said there was no evidence the lawmaker had earmarked funds for Murtech."

    Murtha has an A rating from the NRA and a o rating from NARAL. I would assume that he is your kind of democrat except that he supports labor rights.

    I can't tell who is more crooked... Steny or Jack?

    If Steny is more crooked, then Pelosi and Murtha look like good guys

    But if Murtha is more crooked, it makes Pelosi look like crap.
