National group calls for investigation of Roy Blunt

A national watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has called for ethics investigations of Seventh District Congressman Roy Blunt and 12 other members of Congress, according to an article in today's Los Angeles Times.
The list also includes Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, the article said.
Blunt was cited for: "trying to insert provisions into bills that in one case would have benefited a client of his lobbyist son and, in the other case, the employer of his lobbyist girlfriend, now his wife."
The report is called "Beyond DeLay: The 13 Most Corrupt Members of Congress" and is based, CREW said, on news articles and other documents. The 13 named in the report include two Democrats and 11 Republicans.
