The Boston Herald published a story about Congresscritters who have taken trips paid for by lobbyists. These lobbysists paid almost $17,000 this year to shuttle Massachusets representatives, their wives and their aides to meetings in celebrated political meeting locations like San Diego, Ft. Lauderdale and Puerto Vallarta. Rep. Edward Markey (D-Malden), Rep. Norman Dicks (D-Wash.), Rep. William Delahunt (D-Quincy), Rep. Barney Frank (D-Newton), Springfield Democrat Richard Neal, and California Democratic representatives George Miller, Sam Farr and Susan Davis were all named in the story. But no Republicans were named.

Hm. I thought Democrats were the party of honesty, integrity and altruism.

Or they could just be politicians. All politicians are crooks.
