Though 42% of voters last November said corruption was one of their top issues when casting their ballot, the Senate still failed to pass legislation yesterday that would have tightened regulations surrounding ethics and lobbying reform.

 

After a long day and some backroom maneuvering the bill went down without a vote late last night.

 

Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin (D-IL), who will introduce Clean Elections legislation in late February, said he hopes that the ethics vote “is just going to be a bump in the road” on the legislation. The voters hope so too.
