Both Sides Feed At Congresses Trough

Eric Pfeiffer’s Beltway Buzz has been highlighting the tendency of members of Congress to employee family members as consultants. Democratic spin notwithstanding, employing family is a decidedly bipartisan (and perfectly legal) affair on the Hill. The Buzz notes:

“In 2002, [Senator Barbara] Boxer paid her son $150,000 for professional services, more than any DeLay family member earned in a single year.”

When it comes to cronyism in Congress, most everyone lives in a glass house.
