Democrats File Ethics Complaint Against Rep. Mark Meadows

Rep. Mark Meadows, king of government shutdowns in the NC-11, is the target of a requested government ethics investigation because of his toleration of a woman-pawwing chief of staff and because of eventual excessive severance payments to that chief of staff when he left Meadows' employment and moved his woman-pawwing back to Hayesville.

The American Democracy Legal Fund made its request for investigation to the Office of Congressional Ethics, and -- proving that he is in fact a rocket scientist -- Meadows issued a statement saying the charge is "politically motivated."

[chortle, snort]

Wonder what Meadows said when a conservative group previously questioned the severance pay and vacation pay that the woman-pawwing chief of staff scarfed up after he left the job in May. He was paid through August for doing nothing.

Asheville Citizen-Times: "Politico reported the severance pay violated House rules on compensation .... Rules say congressional staffers can only be paid for work done during the month of a payment, but also outline procedures for one-time payments to staffers like bonuses for special accomplishments."

Hmmm. "Special accomplishments." Is there a loving cup given out for sexual harassment?

NCGOP seems extremely fond of handing out big money to its friends... on the backs of those whose tax burden went up significantly this year...
