Dreier, DeLay's Friend & GOP Gay Hypocrite
Rep. Louise Slaughter, Ranking Member of the Rules Committee, (the committee with jurisdiction over the procedures of the Ethics Committee) has been a vocal opponent of the Repub leadership's continued efforts to destroy the House Ethics process. On March 17, 2005, Rep. Slaughter and the Democratic members of the House Committee on Rules called on GOP Chairman David Dreier to hold hearings on House ethics, and specifically on H. Res. 131, a bipartisan proposal to restore the ethics complaint process after it was unilaterally gutted by the Republican leadership at the beginning of the 109th Congress. You can see the letters here. So, who exactly is David Dreier?... well in addition to giving $5K to Tom DeLay's legal defense fund, he is also a big gay GOP hypocrite.
