Publius wants Murtha gone:

The main reason I oppose Murtha is that he’s corrupt. CREW, for instance, includes him as one of the few Democrats on the “20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress” (and they have further details there). It’s not just that he loves him some pork though lots of people love pork, and I frankly don’t care all that much about earmarks anyway.

The problem with Murtha is the type of pork he pushes for namely, massive bloated defense spending.

Looks like Publius may get his wish.
