Those pesky Congressional ethics laws


Duff Wilson in The Times reports that Congressional autograph seekers may have broken federal laws. Maybe the House Ethics Committee can get in on this circus as well.

And if anyone is interested, MLB.com is carrying the hearings live right now.

Also, Andy Pettitte supposedly said he used HGH once in 2004 also. So the Mitchell Report couldn’t even get a complete picture of the people named in it. Good work, Senator.

    Pettite took HGH in 2004 =[ Roger looks way uncomfortable and that one guy was absolutely RUINING Mcnamee’s spirit with the past statements, this is the best entertainment I’ve had in a long time with the writers strike.

    Dan Burton destroyed Brian McNamee’s credibility and just lit into the Committee as whole for holding this hearing. That was priceless.

    Clemens does look nervous and had a hard time getting his statements out. I don’t think he’s done anything to incriminate himself.

    Tom Davis looks like Harrison Ford.

    Hard to bash Sen. Mitchell. After all, he had to not only perform his duties as a Board member for the boston red sox, he also had to be sure there were token players other than Yankess to investigate while he went after Clemens, Pettitte and Knoblauch. Is this crap ever going to end? I JUST WANT BASEBALL!!! Pitchers/Catchers: TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess if Mitchell had interviewed Pettitte’s daddy he would have had that information, but McNamee couldn’t very provide it if he didn’t know about it.
