Radley Balko has a good colum with the winning headline of Congress Has No Business in Professional Sports. After a rundown of the familiar outrages, he drops these turds on the head of Rep. Tom Davis, the Republican chair of the scarequote-worthy "House Committee on Government Reform":
Rep. Davis and fellow baseball antagonists say steroids and amphetamines give athletes an "unfair advantage" over the competition. Never mind that after the 2000 census, Davis led efforts to gerrymander his own congressional district to ensure he'd never need to worry about re-election. Due to gerrymandering, Davis ran unopposed in 2002, as did one in five of his congressional colleagues.
Davis also recently sneaked a provision into federal legislation that prevented an apartment complex from going up in his district because, according to the Washington Post, he feared it would bring too many Democrats into the area.
Whole thing here.
