Back along about the time that Rep Conyers' wife was being investigated for taking bribes, Mr. Conyers announced that the House Judiciary Committee, of which he was chairman, would be investigating voter irregularities involving ACORN.
His wife, a Detroit city councilwoman, just pled guilty to the charges. Now Mr. Conyers says he's dropping the ACORN investigation. I'm thinking that the threat of investigating ACORN didn't work to quash the investigation of his wife, but perhaps some kind of plea-bargain may have been reached in which dropping the investigation of ACORN will be traded for a slap on the wrist for his wife, who would otherwise be looking at 5 years in the joint.
The whole country is now Chicago. Get used to it.
