Reid To Introduce "Honest Leadership Act," Includes "Jack Abramoff Rule"... | The Huffington Post

On Wednesday, Jan 18, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will unveil a set of reforms in an Honest Leadership Act to be introduced jointly by Senate and House Democrats. The Honest Leadership Act is intended to clean out the corruption and cronyism in government, and prevent abuses of power in the future.

A key proposal in the Act is known as “The Jack Abramoff Rule.” It bans members and staff from receiving gifts, meals and travel from lobbyists. Current Ethics Committee rules allow gifts and meals under $50 for members and staff and require full disclosure of lobbyist-related travel.


This is only the first baby step of the house-cleaning that is needed in Washington.

Get the damned money out of politics! NOW!
