Murtha Supports ‘Total Crap’ of a Bill

From Roll Call, some insight into one hurdle Jack Murtha has in his bid to become House Majority Leader:

“Even though I think it’s total crap, I’ll vote for it and pass it because that’s what Nancy wants,” [Jack] Murtha told the Blue Dogs, according to three sources who were at the meeting.

Pelosi has made enactment of the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act the cornerstone of her legislative agenda for the 110th Congress, and she is preparing to make it the first bill introduced under her reign. Murtha voted against the legislation earlier this year on the House floor.
