GOP talking points on ethics obtained; Dems targeted in battle


Even before the measure was taken to the full Rules Committee in the House—or the full House—Republicans were circulating talking points seeking to portray the reversal on ethics rules as Democratic foul play, RAW STORY has learned.


The talking points, reproduced below, suggest that Democrats sought to derail the ethics process, though it was Republicans who forced through a controversial ethics page in January that gave the Republican majority the upper hand on a committee that was supposed to be bipartisan.

The talking points are reproduced below. RAW STORY has also obtained a letter sent by GOP speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) complaining in a similar vein about the Democrats' moves surrounding the ethics impasse.
