Representative Hastert screams over his "rights"

Representative Hastert continues his tirade over the "Unconstitutional" search of Congressman William Jefferson (D) Congressional Office. As is well documented in Right Wing News

"They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place."

Perhaps Representative Hastert hasn't heard, but taking bribes is considered a Felony by every State of the Union, not to mention Federal Law.

The Democrats claim the Republicans have a Culture of Corruption, in reality, a vast majority of the Elected Officials have fallen for the idea that they are elite, and even above the law. Some years ago, I offered the observation that each Elected official, as well as most Hollywood stars, should have to hire a Cynic and thus have someone nearby at all times who is going to remind the individual in question that they are HUMAN, not gods, and kick them in the proverbial shin now and then to remind them that they aren't elite nor are they as brilliant as they think. I felt it would be far preferable to the group of sycophants that surround them now.

Congress finds it totally appropriate to hold public hearings on any department, office, that may be. Ordering people to comply, and surrender documents with no evidence of any wrongdoing on the part of the witness. Yet, when there is evidence, a subpoena is ignored, and the warrant to search is "unconstitutional".

We hope that the Representatives in question will hire themselves a cynic soon, because this czarist mentality is starting to become rather offensive to We The People

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has a great Vent on Hot Air today.
