Democrats Under Scrutiny As They Shape Lobbying Bill - washingtonpost.com:
Democrats' promise to end the 'culture of corruption' they said developed in Washington under Republican rule helped propel the party into the majority in November elections. They quickly tightened the rules over travel, meals and gifts from lobbyists, and improved disclosure rules for earmarks -- the pet projects that lawmakers tuck into legislation.

But a task force appointed by Pelosi (D-Calif.) to look into creating an independent entity to investigate ethics charges against lawmakers has missed its May 1 deadline for issuing recommendations, amid foot-dragging by members opposed to the idea.
Don't let us down, Democrats; we can be very fickle. This is probably the most important single act of legislation you will get a chance to pass this year (other than impeaching the entire administration, which you have yet to move on). Make it good or face the consequences.
