Playing Politics?

Congressman Joel Hefley, recently removed as Chairman of the House Ethics Committee, believes the move was politically motivated.

The Colorado Springs Congressman was removed last month from the chairmanship after he admonished House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

The Texas Congressman is under fire by state prosecutors for allegedly using campaign funds illegally.

Hefley points to the firings of 2 senior staff lawyers who investigated DeLay as evidence.

The office of the new Ethics Committee chairman denies the firings were a political purge.
