From a 3 May 2006 press release from Congressman Steny Hoyer (RAT - Maryland) now the House majority leader: "The greed and flagrant abuses of convicted felons, former Republican member Duke Cunningham and Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff, hang over this house like a dark cloud. The 'K Street' Project proudly promoted by Tom Delay, Rick Santorum and the Republican Leadership--in which quid pro quo was the blatantly articulated standard of conduct--is the most flagrant example of the aptly named 'culture of corruption.'"

From, 21 February 2007 (ellipsis in original): "House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has a great vacation planned for May: He's going to a fancy golf & beach resort in Puerto Rico where people get 'sensually awakened.' And he's taking a planeload of lobbyists . . . enough to fill 137 luxury hotel suites. Doesn't that sound nice? But unlike Tom DeLay's unethical golf trip to Scotland with Jack Abramoff, Steny's seaside lobbyist orgy is completely okay because the lobbyists aren't paying Hoyer himself--they're paying Hoyer's PAC."
