A correspondent from CBS News made this rather audacious claim to Chris Matthews:
Gloria Borger: This new ethics legislation that’s been passed by the House, is going to be passed by the Senate. Watch for mass resignations from House members, who are now saying they can’t afford to live here unless they’re bought and paid for by lobbyists. they’re going to leave.
I’d be willing to place a sizable bet with Borger that this is complete and utter nonsense. In fact, if there are even 5 resignations in the House before the next Congressional election, I’ll go to Borger’s house and clean her driveway with a toothbrush.
