House Ethics Committee round-up …
There are five Republicans on the Ethics Committee (and five Dems).
Ohio’s Steven LaTourette is telling constituents that he’s in the Shays Handful; but as of yet we’ve seen no press reports that confirm this.
We had Washington state’s Doc Hastings down as a letter-writer. But late this afternoon we received word that a Hastings staffer told at least one constituent that Hastings supported the DeLay Vote but wouldn’t reveal how he voted because it was a ‘secret’ vote. (I guess he sort of wanted to mix up the categories a bit.) If anyone hears more on Hastings, let us know.
