The Center for Public Integrity: Special Interests, We're at TED and ICIJ Impact
Belated recognition too for a piece by John Dunbar on U.S. Rep. Roger Williams, a Republican congressman from Texas who offered an amendment last fall that would directly benefit his car dealership. John wrote about it, the Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint and the House Ethics Committee has opened an investigation. The amendment would have excused car dealers from a law that prohibits dealers and rental car companies from renting vehicles that are subject to safety recalls. Read about the investigation here. More will be revealed as the committee reviews the complaint for possible sanctions.
