Another Democratic Senator, Another Scandal

They really ought to get that log out their own eye first.
Former Senator Robert Torricelli, a New Jersey Democrat, is accused of urging Baghdad to give a US company lucrative contracts under the much-criticised United Nations oil-for-food programme.

The investigation involves one of the most vivid figures in US east coast politics, former senator Robert Torricelli, a New Jersey Democrat who was forced to pull out of the 2002 election after being “severely admonished” by the Senate ethics committee for accepting expensive gifts from David Chang, a campaign contributor. Mr Chang, a Korean-American businessman, was found guilty in 2002 of conspiring to violate federal campaign laws and was jailed for 15 months.

Surprised?
