The NYT headline right now:
"As His Ethics Trial Begins, Rangel Meets With Farm Workers"
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/16/nyregion/16day.html

this localvorism thing has gotten out of control if farmworkers are a politically significant constituency in Harlem. (and it's not 1840)

Charlie convicted on 11 counts of ethics rules violations and 3 counts of fashion rules violations.

What will be his punishment? Strong words? A slap on the hand? No pudding before bedtime?

Yes, yes I am enjoying this moment of schadenfreude

Did we ever mention Tom Delay here? If not, considered him mentioned.

I love this part:
TFA wrote:However Mr Hancock, who is presently on bail over an alleged indecent assault against a female constituent, defended his employee, saying: “I have no reason to believe she did any thing but act honourably during the time she was working for me.
Normally, I'd say that when a person with access to privileged information has a criminal record and is hiring a suspected spy, there are issues of possible blackmail to consider, and it should be front and center in the article. However, it seems that an MP being on bail for indecent assault is considered such an unremarkable thing that it gets put to the end of the article.
