Lewis Now Under the Scope

By on 5.11.06 | 1:04PM

U.S. Attorneys are now investigating House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Calif.).

Of course, liberals seize on it. They seem to live in some fantasy world where the problem is the party at the wheel, and not the fact that an incredibly large government is a corrupting one.

I will presume Lewis innocent until proven guilty. But it is worth noting that this is the same Jerry Lewis who last month tried to scuttle budget reforms and helped load up the emergency appropriations bill. These guys operate on appropriations, not principle. So color me unsurprised when any of them abuses his office and runs afoul of the law.
