Barbara Boxer bullies senate's birth doc

Yet another reason this horrid harpy is the worst Senator California has ever had. What a bitch.

Meanwhile, with all of the ethics stink bombs lurking in Washington, the (Senate Ethics) committee, chaired by California Democrat Barbara Boxer, is aiming its guns at Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., for "a serious violation of Senate rules."

Coburn's bad? An obstetrician by profession, Coburn won't heed the committee's threat to reprimand him for delivering babies back home in Oklahoma — for free.

"On my own time, I'm taking care of women who have a need, and I'm going to continue to deliver babies," Coburn told

And, bully for him: "I'm not going to stop." When a member of the House, Coburn delivered 400 babies under an agreement with ethics meisters that allowed him to do so — if he charged only enough to cover his expenses.
As Coburn spokesman John Hart noted, there have been many stories about lawmakers, their friends and families profiting from earmarks, but "no one has ever chosen to have Dr. Coburn deliver her baby in order to sway his vote."
With Democrats in charge the mandate is clear: Forget Ethics, It's Payback Time.
