What was that about the "culture of corruption," again?

Oh, snap! This is hi-frigging-larious.
The top Democrat on the House ethics committee agreed Friday to leave the panel to defend his financial conduct and ease the political burden on a party that has made Republican corruption a major campaign theme.

Rep. Alan Mollohan, D-W.Va., decided on his own to step down at least temporarily, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said. His presence on the committee, while under an ethics cloud, would have undermined Democratic accusations that majority Republicans allow a "culture of corruption" in Congress.
Shut up, really? Later in the article, while trying to blame the resignation of the (and you'll have to excuse me, but I love pointing this out) senior Democrat on the Ethics Committee over shady financial conduct, Pelosi just couldn't help herself and dropped the whole "Republican culture of corruption" line again.

It is to laugh. Well, it would be if these people weren't trying to wrest back control of at least one house of congress.
