The December 18 blog "Ethics Scandal in Colorado House Not Exactly in Blagojevich Territory" pointed out that the charges leveled against Centennial representative David Balmer, pictured, in regard to possible "outside influence" in his bid to become House minority leader couldn't compare to those embroiling Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. This assertion was borne out yesterday. Even as Blago opted to appear on shows like The View rather than attending his own impeachment trial (although the helmet-haired guv has said he will make an appearance at the proceedings today), Blamer was cleared of wrongdoing in a unanimous vote of the House Ethics Committee. I'm starting to get scandal envy.
