Sam Rosenfeld asks a very good question: How exactly does the GOP's removal of tax credits for movie studios in response to the RIAA's hiring of Democrat Dan Glickman differ from 1998, when the House Ethics Committee chastised Tom DeLay for holding up a copyright bill after the Electronics Industry Alliance hired Democrat Dave McCurdy?
I can think of one difference right off: In 1998, the Ethics Committee took action against DeLay on its own initiative. No way in hell that happens this time around. So now that the bogus "ethics truce" has been broken, will someone file a complaint about this?Posted by Charles Kuffner on October 09, 2004 to Scandalized! | TrackBack
