Friends in corrupt places

AP writer Sharon Theimer tells us what we already knew...

The lawmaker who will head a House inquiry into trips that lobbyist Jack Abramoff arranged for Tom DeLay has his own links to the lobbyist.

Hastings' appointment to head the House ethics committee came after the previous chairman took issue with some of DeLay's activities and GOP House leaders removed him from the panel. Last month, two Republican committee members who gave to DeLay's legal defense stepped aside from the DeLay investigation, acknowledging their donations could lead people to question their objectivity.

Also Dems say they have the votes for Bush's other wacky buddy.
