Favorite Democrat action of the day
I think for the next couple of weeks we should discuss our favorite Democratic action of the day.

Today I nominate Patrick Leahy for introducing the The War Profiteering Prevention Act of 2007.

Such profiteering would be a felony under Leahy's legislation, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and fines of $1 million or twice the gross profits of the profiteering. The bill would also clarify U.S. courts' jurisdiction to handle cases of profiteering which occur overseas.

To make it a muck-fighting twofer, Leahy also joined Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) to introduce a bill aimed at strengthening public corruption investigations. The proposal would extend the statute of limitations for many offenses, allow federal investigators to use wiretaps when chasing state and local officials defrauding the federal government, and would boost the FBI's public integrity budget by $100 million over four years.


That's what I'm talking about.

Pelosi's ethics smackdown is a close second.
