    Ethically challenged? You bet! But, when our congressional representatives openly admit that they don't even bother to read the bills that they vote into the law of the land, can anyone be surprised that they don't bother to read the rules of a scholarship award!?

    Congradulations on exposing another corrupt US representive.

    I would like to hear what the Congressional ethics commitee has to say about this?

    Are they investigating this, or is it considered business as usual in Washington.

    This is just typical politician behavior. Lie, cheat, steal and get away with it. What good is ethics rules if there are no consequents. Didn’t they fire a lady or an edited video that did nothing wrong? We need to vote these cheats and fools out every term. The government is corrupt at every level it seems.
