ISN'T HAVING HISTORY OF BEING, YOU KNOW, ETHICAL IMPORTANT FOR RUNNING AN ETHICS OFFICE?

Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner have named a group dominated by ex-representatives (including Abner "nobody that nobody sent" Mikva) to run the new Office of Congressional Ethics including Republican former CIA Director Porter Goss who will co-chair the office with democratic ex-Rep. David Skaggs. Recall that Goss was one of the main backers of the USA PATRIOT act which sadly didn't seem to keep him in Bush's good graces as the president replaced Goss with Gen. Michael Haydon soon after. Goss was also against a public 9-11 commission. He finally got the boot from Bush after the FBI raided subordnate Dusty Foggo's office and home and connected Foggo to the Brent Wilkes/Duke Cunningham scandal. He sounds like the perfect guy to lead an ethics oversight office.
