As I have written here at least once before, only to be proven wrong, Spring is finally here.

But, let's keep the optimism up and say, with faith, that Spring really is here to stay.

House of Representatives, illegally funneled campaign contributions to his own use should be examined in the brightest possible light, and that means letting a grand jury decide what happened rather than turning the matter over to the House Ethics Committee, which isn't experienced in such investigations and doesn't have the power to take effective action.
