Missouri Senators split on outside ethics office

By a 70-30 margin Wednesday, the U. S. Senate rejected a bipartisan measure that would have created an office of public integrity, which would have overseen Senate rules. The office was proposed following recent lobbying scandals.
One of those voting for the measure was Sen Jim Talent, R-Mo., while his Missouri colleague, Sen. Kit Bond, cast a "no" vote.

Yep, it is election year, Talent will pretend to be moderate for a year.
