The C-Street House is already a controversy in itself. It is infamous for being headquarters to an ultra-secret society of high powered politicians calling themselves “The Family”. C-Street recently made national news for its use of Congressional interns as servants and its relationship to admitted adulterers Senator John Ensign, Republican from Nevada and South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, Republican.
According to the Associated Press;
The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington - CREW for short - cites news reports that say House members and some senators have paid below-market rents to live in a house on C Street SE that is owned by a Christian prayer group known as the Fellowship. CREW wants the House and Senate ethics committees to determine whether the monthly rent, reported to be around $950, is below the market value. If so, CREW says, the discount could amount to an illegal gift.
Once again we see the moral bankruptcy of the Republican Party and their hypocritical “family values.”
