Senator Conrad Burns (R-MT) receives corruption award.
How's this for local pride? Montana's Republican senator, Conrad Burns, has been named one of the thirteen most corrupt members of the U.S. Senate by a group called CREW.
CREW are Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, crusading against "government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests." I hope they keep up the good work. And I hope to see Big Sandy native Jon Tester moving in to Burns's office fifteen months from now. Montana's already got a great governor who, I can say with no exaggeration, provides truly inspired leadership. It's got one good senator, as well, so why shouldn't it have two?
