In a stunning blow to the Senatorial hopes of Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-NV), the House Ethics Committee today unanimously voted to open an investigative subcommittee into conflict of interest charges stemming from her alleged attempts to direct cash toward the kidney health care industry – and, in particular, toward her husband, who runs the Kidney Specialists of Southern Nevada. Breitbart News led the charge in demanding investigation into Berkley's activities.

The House Ethics Committee, chaired by Rep. Jo Bonner (R-AL) and ranking member Rep. Linda T. Chavez (D-CA), released the following statement:

My favorite comment at the link:

“Imagine the HR department when the answer to What Sex are you? And both are checked. What needs investigating is the claim of 1/32 female.”

My take

NE
AZ
IN
MO
WI (with Tommy T)

NV (maybe should be higher now eh :) )
MT
WI (with a different Republican than Tommy T)
MA
VA
OH

FL
NM
MI
NJ
ME (it looks bad in polling but I think it’s a better chance than the below)
PA

CT
WV (wish it was much higher)

Yes, I thought that it was unlikely that Berkley could beat Heller in 2012. That PPP poll showing a dead heat was ridiculous—Heller is up by at least 6%, and Berkley is already a known quantity who is unlikely to make up the difference. And now, of course, she’s taken a kidney punch (ha!) and her odds may be going from slim to none.

Nevada conservatives should form a “grassroots Democrat” group urging Berkley to step aside and encourage Steven Horsford to abandon his House race in NV-04 and run for the Senate instead. Heller would stomp Horsford, and the NV-04 would go from tilt Democrat to a dead heat.

Conflict of interest? That's the best we can do? How about fraud, misappropriation of funds, using a position of trust to steal from the people of the United States?

I'm almost certain that "conflict of interest" penalty is something like we put a nasty note in your file folder and file the folder in the trash.

No problem. It’s a work in progress and I’ll take stock every week or so and do some adjusting. From the feedback I’ve gotten, I’m just kind of doing an rough averaging. Nothing scientific. I’ll throw yours into the mix and see what happens.

I’ll probably check back with you in a few weeks and see if you would change anything, so keep your list available for future reference.

No.

Just no.

This corrupt Berkley thing is a gift, but even the unions here don’t care about it. I do what I can for Heller.
