#1 "reflects negatively upon the decorum and credibility of the House as a body and as an institution,"

Blatant psychological projection. An obvious reference to the CBC itself.

#2 So is their 'free franking' also a direct violation of ethics? (given their political opponents every two years have none)

Interesting that they are not talking about how they exempt themselves from laws they pass governing other citizens.

#4 Wow. Maxine Waters thinks someone else "reflects negatively upon the decorum and credibility of the House".

#8 So when you almost pull an all nighter digging through democrap bullshit and listening to them bully rag the POTUS, you can't take a short nap?

I suppose sleeping on a coast to coast red eye is an ethics violation also.

Just remember what Einstein said about the difference between genius and stupidity:

"Genius has its limits"
