Oh, Those Special Interest Trips!

The Washington Times reports on the numerous trips, paid for by outsiders, that members of congress are suddenly remembering and reporting. Link.
Scrutiny of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's travel has led to the belated disclosure of at least 198 previously unreported special-interest trips by House members and their aides, including eight years of travel by the second-ranking Democrat, an Associated Press review found.
At least 43 House members and dozens of aides had failed to meet the one-month deadline in ethics rules for disclosing trips financed by organizations outside the U.S. government. [...]

Rep. Ellen O. Tauscher, California Democrat, disclosed 21 trips. Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, Illinois Democrat, reported 20 past trips, and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Maryland Democrat, reported 13.

All of the mud being thrown at Tom DeLay concerned trips that he had fully disclosed. That is how his enemies knew about them. Now it develops that, by reporting his trips, Tom DeLay is just about the most honest person in the entire Congress. Will the Democrats now bring ethics charges against the 43 members, mainly Democrats, who failed to report their trips until such trips became front-page news?
