Bravo to Alabama Rep. Parker Griffith's staff, which has resigned
en masse to protest his sleazy decision to switch parties and
become a Republican. Taking a swipe at reports Griffith did what he had
to do to get re-elected, Chief of Staff Sharon Wheeler announced she
and the rest of the staff "cannot, in
good conscience, continue working for him."

"(We) are taking a leap of
faith with the belief we will soon find ourselves in the employment of
principled public officials."
