Conservative 'C Street House' Residents Face Ethics Complaints For Below-Market Rent

The bevy of conservative members of Congress who've resided at the notorious "C Street House" may have violated Congressional gift rules by accepting steeply-discounted lodging, new ethics complaints allege.
The watchdog organization CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) filed complaints Thursday charging Republican Sens. Sam Brownback (Kan.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Jim DeMint (S.C.) and John Ensign (Nev.), as well as Reps. Mike Doyle (D-Penn.), Heath Shuler (D-N.C.), Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), with accepting "improper gifts" from C Street in the form of way-below-market rent. LinkHere
To read all about C Street, The Family, and how far it has already infiltrated Congress, pick up a copy of "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism At The Heart of American Power" by Jeff Sharlett.
Scary stuff. Seriously scary.
