Judicial Watch Statement on the Elections

Contact: Jill Farrell of Judicial Watch, 202-646-5188


WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton offered the following statement today regarding the results of the 2006 mid-term elections:


"For years, Judicial Watch was virtually alone among conservatives in warning of the dangers of corruption in Republican ranks. Corruption set back the Democratic Party in the 1990's and resulted in disastrous electoral results yesterday for Republicans. It is well past the time for conservatives to force Republicans to clean house. 'Conservative' Republicans who are crooks should be abandoned by principled conservatives. No more Tom DeLays, please.


"When it comes to corruption, liberals and Democrats are in no better shape and should also clean house. Voter distaste for corruption may not bode well for an Abramoff-connected Harry Reid or the ethically-challenged Hillary Clinton, who escaped a perjury indictment by the skin of her teeth. And now Nancy Pelosi will have to figure out what to do with members such as John Conyers. Conyers is in line to head the Judiciary Committee yet is credibly alleged to have engaged in criminal wrongdoing.


"Despite the strong anti-corruption message sent by voters yesterday, it is unlikely either party will learn many lessons from these election results. In order to maintain or regain control of Congress, members of both parties will be sorely tempted to sell their public office for private and political gain. Indeed, many corrupt politicians were reelected or continue to serve in Congress. Continued prosecutions and unhampered investigations will continue to provide the best guard against rampant corruption in Congress."


Judicial Watch, the conservative government watchdog, is dedicated to fighting government and judicial corruption and promoting a return to ethics and morality in our nation's public life.
