North Dakota Media Ignores Ethics Probe Into Lobbying Of Earl Pomeroy

WASHINGTON - JULY 26:  (L-R) U.S. House Democrats Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), chairman of the Democratic Caucus; Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-ND), Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), and Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA),  joined other House Democrats for a press conference to promote the 'Amerisave' plan at the Capitol July 26, 2005 in Washington, DC. According to the Democrats, the plan is intended to help middle-class families to save for retirement.  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

Yesterday I posted about news from Washington DC that the Office of Congressional Ethics was requesting information from lobbyists about their dealings with Rep. Earl Pomeroy and seven other members of Congress with relation to the banking and finance bill passed last year.

The story has been reported all over the national media, and local media outlets across the nation has gotten reactions from the members of Congress named, but as of this morning I haven’t seen a word of it reported in the North Dakota media.

A search via Google News indicates that. as of the time of the writing of this post, not a single North Dakota media outlet even mentioned the announcement from the OCE.

Convenient, no?
