Howard Dean and Chris Bell Fight Republican "Culture of Corruption"

Here is an article, Dean slam at GOP puts Democrats in tricky spot, that points out some of the trouble that DNC Chair Howard Dean has been having with those in his own party about his going after Republicans and their "Culture of Corruption":
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean is trying to get voters to hold the Republican Party responsible for the "culture of corruption" he sees in Washington, but Dean is getting virtually no help from fellow Democrats in the House of Representatives.

In the year since then-Rep. Chris Bell (D-Texas) filed a complaint that triggered the current ethics investigation of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), not one Democrat has initiated another complaint despite the pleas of outside watchdog groups.
No Democrat in Congress wants to take up Chris Bell's moniker as the buster of the so called ethics truce in Washington. Yes, believe it or not, some Democrats participated as well in unethical actions. We need to clean our own house as well as the Republican house to make our government more democracy friendly. What I'm saying is that if we want to become the party of the people again we need to make sure we can be trusted by everyone and in order to do that we need to sweep the corruption out of our own party as well. We also need to realize that this is not easy or pretty. It's why Howard Dean may never be liked by all Democrats and that's not necessarily a bad thing for the future of our party. Let me know what you think.
