Of all the accusations that are following Senator Charles Grassley’s “investigation” of 6 major ministries, the “$23,000 Antique Marble Commode” is my favorite, hands down. Yes dear readers – I’ve seen Joyce’s commode. It was an antique donated to her ministry specifically to sit in the lobby of her office. Lobby you ask? That’s right. Look at these pictures of antique commodes.
Worse, there may be really worthy issues with these ministries that need to be addressed, and I’m all for obeying the law and operating above board. But when you throw in undocumented assertions in order to hype up the story, it’s way out of line.
Even in pursuit of a good ideal, this is a terrible way to go about it.
