St. Patrick?
In one of the most appalling abuses of power P&J have seen at Halitosis Hall, Speaker of the House Gordon "38 Studios" Fox recently cashiered Representative Patrick O'Neill from his position on the House Judiciary Committee because he had the gall to push through the committee — on a unanimous vote, mind you — a badly needed ethics reform bill.
