Dems Face Slew of Investigations Under Issa

Democrats’ halcyon days in Congress are ending with a thud. California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has a slew of investigations coming down the pipe in the weeks ahead, focusing on everything from WikiLeaks, to Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac, to corruption in Afghanistan, Politico reports.

"If we can take any lessons away from the results of the mid-term elections, it's that the American people will no longer tolerate a government that has institutionalized a culture of waste and abuse that acts carelessly with their tax-dollars,” Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella says in a statement.
