We'd have given anything to see the facial expressions this week of
Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, Senate Minority Leader Tom Dachle,
and Senate Ethics Committee Chairman Pat Roberts when they opened the
handsome leather-bound volume of "My Book on Ethics" by Sen. Hillary
You guessed it: Every page of the unauthorized tell-all book is blank.
Copies of the book were hand-delivered this week to the three leading
lawmakers by the Citizens' Investigative Commission, a project of the
Council of Volunteer Americans.
The commission is calling for an ethics probe of Mrs. Clinton
surrounding her latest maneuvers: the $8 million book deal with Simon &
Schuster, her receiving over $19,000 in gifts before exiting the White
House on Jan. 20, and her role in her husband's 11-th hour pardons of
fugitive tax cheat Marc Rich and four convicted embezzlers in her chosen
state of New York.
