The Culture of Corruption lives on in the form of corruption plagued Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's efforts to kill ethics reforms directly related to the Jack Abramoff scandal.
One of the many ways Abramoff was able to be a player was through taking advantage of campaign finance loopholes relating to Indian tribes. Harry Reid has benefited from Abramoff in this way.
Senator David Vitter (R-LA) introduced an amendment to the Lobby and Ethics Reform bill to close that loophole.
In only their third vote in the new session, Senate Democrats killed the amendment. The culture of corruption and Harry Reid's greed live on.
