Rep. Kevin McCarthy is in an interesting crucible in his quest to become House speaker. What are some recalcitrant members of the hard right faction of the GOP asking him to do in order to lend support?
According to Time Magazine, they want to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), which just happens to be investigating certain House members behavior relating to January 6, 2021.
Brilliant move really. Cynical, perfidious, but what else did you expect? First rule of politics, cover your ass.
Gaetz, Gosar, Biggs, Perry, Jordan, Greene, Boebert and Co. will now get to skedaddle down the road and completely evade accountability. Should be an interesting two years.
