WHAT!!?? -House weakens ethics rules

WHAT!!?? -House weakens ethics rules - Jan. 7, 2003. Get this:

The changes by the majority Republican leadership caught Democrats by surprise and ignored the House ethics committee's warnings against skirting the spirit of ethical conduct.
The change in the perishable food provision -- dubbed the "pizza rule" by protesting Democrats -- legalized the very type of scheme in the ethics panel's warning last November.

WTF?
