Feeding the Watchdogs, make that Lapdogs
My print column is up.
UPDATE: Jennifer Rubin has more on CREW here.
UPDATE II: Comment of the Day: CHM sez:
" Funny....I don't remember CREW filing any complaints about the "personal benefits" that President Clinton received in the Oval Office. "1. Fondling and/or receiving sexual favors from an intern is not taxable event, though it might raise a few questions about the professional and personal ethics of persons engaged in such behavior on government property.
2. CREW wasn't founded by liberals until 2003 until it was needed to watchdog a Republican president.
And still, heh!
UPDATE III: Here's MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell accusing Rep. Jason Chaffetz of being a tax criminal. Decide for yourself who comes off better from the exchange.
UPDATE IV: There seems to be a little confusion among some commenters. Congressmen are entitled to take a $3,000 a year living allowance deduction. If they sleep in their offices, it does seem fair that they don't take the deduction. Right.
