Fear of investigation is a congressional motivator

With the recent raid on Congressman William Jefferson’s office, both Republican and Democratic congressmen are showing unparalleled cooperation to stop this.

This was definitely started by the Bush administration, the fact that Jefferson is a Democrat is enough. But why would the rest of congress be afraid?

Were you to place every congressman and senators names into a hat and pull one at random and then investigate, the probability is somewhere in the range of .6 to a full on 1 that you’d find something dirty in those offices.

That’s why there’s a palpable fear in congress. It isn’t that they’re trying to stop executive power, it’s that their own asses are on the line.
