From The Washington Post:
In what may amount to an election-year tit-for-tat, House Democratic leaders are privately weighing whether to seek an ethics investigation into how Republicans handled the sex scandal that ended Indiana Rep. Mark Souder’s career.
The idea arose Wednesday after Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), chairman of the House Republican Conference, told reporters that he learned last week of his GOP colleague’s extramarital affair — three days before House Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio) said he first heard about it. Pence said that he approached Souder on the House floor Thursday after hearing rumors of the romance.

From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:
The annual cultural debate over Christmas has come to Congress.
South Carolina Rep. Henry Brown, Jr. and 18 of his fellow House Republicans [OOPS! It was 17 Rethugs and 1 Democrat] this week introduced Resolution 951, which makes it clear that Christmas should not be watered down for political correctness.
