Flake Leads Spending Fight
by

At a time when congressional Republicans desperately need leadership, Rep. Jeff Flake continues to press for spending responsibility and accountability.  Reports Politico:

Rep. Jeff Flake, one of the loudest critics of earmarks in federal spending bills, is using the scandal over the PMA Group in an effort to force the House ethics committee to look into whether earmarks and campaign contributions are linked.

Flake offered a privileged resolution on the House floor Monday night calling on the ethics panel to conduct an investigation and report back to the full body in two months.

The Arizona Republican is trying to use the controversy over the FBI probe involving the PMA Group, a lobbying firm with strong ties to Rep. John Murtha (D-Penn.), to jumpstart his effort.

Now, if only we can elect a couple hundred more congressmen like him!
