In 1995, then-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich rammed through what came to be known as the "gift ban" for Members of Congress. You will not be surprised to learn that the "gift ban" has recently been "clarified". You will also not be surprised to learn that the "gift ban clarification" enables Members of Congress to accept more goodies from those seeking to influence their votes.
This is Republican politics at its most stupid.
