"Let's hope that they do it," she said.

The 10-term congresswoman is accused of violating House rules by seeking federal assistance for a bank with financial ties to her husband.

If it were up to me, I'd kick her out of Congress just for that, and for ignoring prudent economic policy. But, she's right to defend herself–who else if not her? Let's hope the ethics committee finds a legitimate reason to send her back to California for good.
