Dems reprise website to call out House GOP scandals

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is relaunching a website memorializing allegations of ethics violations against Republican members of the House.

The site accuses the GOP of “enabling a culture of corruption” and charges Republicans with hypocrisy for declaring a zero-tolerance policy, then looking the other way while members racked up violations. Republican Reps. Pete Sessions (Texas), Vern Buchanan (Fla.), Michael Grimm (N.Y.), Darrell Issa (Calif.) and David Rivera (Fla.) are all on the initial list.

The DCCC first launched the website, www.houseofscandal.com, during the 2006 cycle. Officials said a new Republican member will be named to the site every month.

"Voters are finding out that Republicans leaders have zero intention of carrying through on their zero-tolerance pledge for Republicans' ethics scandals and corruption," said DCCC spokesman Jesse Ferguson.
