Politico covers the effort to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics led by Rep. Marcia Fudge and several fellow members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Politico attributes the effort in large part to the ill will generated by the OCE’s referral of an investigation involving the PMA lobbying group to the Department of Justice.
Politico neglects the origin of the hostility of Rep. Fudge and other Congressional Black Caucus members to the OCE. This is an important story. Readers looking to round out the picture presented by Politico would be well served by reviewing the New York Times stories that we linked to in “The Fudge factor.”
