Eric Zimmermann at The Hill reports tonight that the most ethical Congress ever voted again to cover corruptocrat John Murtha’s ample backside:

For the sixth time, the House has rejected a resolution by Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to initiate an ethics investigation into the relationship between lawmakers at the PMA Group. This time, however, Flake gained more Democratic supporter than any of the previous votes.

The “privileged resolution”–requiring action within a few days–was tabled by a vote of 210-173, with 25 Democrats voting to keep the resolution alive. Last time, 17 Democrats voted with Flake.

Flake is a long time anti-earmark crusader who has sought to call attention to the ethical shadow surrounding the PMA lobbying firm, which FBI agents raided in February. Paul Magliocchetti, the founder of the firm and a former aide to Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), has closed the lobbying shop and moved to Florida.

To paraphrase the King of Pork, they’re not corrupt, they’re just taking care of each other.
