Cleland Leaves Disability Group

Pauk Singer of Roll Call reports (subscription required) that Former Sen. Max Cleland (D-Ga.) has withdrawn from the board of directors of a charity with close ties to Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) in response to a Roll Call investigation of the group's limited achievements and close ties to a broad network of people and companies Murtha has aided.

I don't see how, if this is true, Murtha can avoid an ethics investigation.

[MEMBERS OF CONGRESS GETTING P.A.I.D.: Another Murtha earmark goes to a nonprofit that has Congressional colleagues on the Board. And the recipient seems kind of bogus: "Despite claiming to represent millions of people, PAID's own Web site has a tracking system that indicates it averages fewer than 10 hits a day. In August, the organization had 14 jobs listed on the site, all of them at two organizations: MountainTop Technologies, a local company that has received millions of dollars in earmarks from Murtha over the past decade; and Greater Alleghenies Blood Services, a local Red Cross center that takes blood donations at the John P. Murtha Donor Pavilion, named in honor of Murtha's efforts to secure earmarks for the facility."
