Payback's a Bitch calls the 110th congress -- "The Oversight Congress." Since Democrats siezed majorities in last year's election and took office in January -- they've been busy with investigations. From Politico:

Aided by a new investigative team including a former mob prosecutor and a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, Democrats have launched more than three dozen probes of the administration ranging from the White House to obscure aency heads. The House Oversight Committee alone has conducted 20 investigations.

This is troubling news for the Bush White House and Republicans. No fewer than six administration officials have resigned already amid the congressional probes -- and many more are in Democratic sights.

Voters named "corruption" as the most important issue to them in the 2006 elections. Rare that you see politicians actually do what voters want. Probably helps that the politicians are getting some payback in the process. (The Politico)
