Really Congress?

Today’s headline:

“Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.), will resign from Congress after being convicted of cocaine possession.”

Not all that shocking, Congressmen are people too, easily tempted by the opportunities afforded by their rock star like paychecks. But here is the story line that really caught my attention:

“The House Ethics Committee created an investigative subcommittee in December to determine whether any of Radel’s actions violated the chamber’s rules.”

Really Congress?  You need to form a committee to determine if it’s unlawful for Congressmen to purchase cocaine?  I’m kinda thinking that’s a no-brainer. but what do I know.
