About that corruption thing...

The democrats seem to have it well in hand, being corrupt that is...
This Bloomberg story has a prime example:

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg)—Representative Alan Mollohan, a West Virginia Democrat whose finances are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is in line to take over the House panel that sets the bureau’s budget.

Mollohan, 63, is the ranking Democrat on the appropriations subcommittee overseeing the Department of Justice, which includes the FBI. His party has a long-standing practice of awarding appropriations subcommittee chairmanships to senior members, and no other Democrat has announced plans to seek the post when the party assumes control of Congress next month.

HT to Rob, who nails it:
Just so we’re clear, this guy is under investigation by the FBI and Nancy Pelosi wants to put him in charge of the FBI’s budget.
