McCain Takes on the "Culture of Corruption"

Sen John McCain (R-AZ) is pushing his party to champion government reform. You know, the party all tangled up right now in scandals with the World Bank and Justice Department.

In a speech in Oklahoma City Monday, the Republican Presidential candidate will wax nostalgic about the "Republican Revolution" of 1994, when the GOP took majorities in the House and Senate on a platform of cleaning up Washington.

Sen McCain says his administration would routinely review ethical standards and practices of his Cabinet. And he says Cabinet Secretaries would be held accountable for unethical behavior of their Departments. He'd also provide Inspectors General direct access to top bureaucrats in their agencies -- up to and including the Cabinet Secretaries. (WBTW-TV)
