Edolphus Towns, the New York Democrat who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, says he's "too busy" to look into the sweet loan deals that Chris Dodd and Kent Conrad got from Countrywide.
Really? Shortly after the whole "Gates-gate" mess, Towns expressed keen interest "in holding hearings into the matter of Gates' arrest, and more broadly looking into the issue of racial profiling by law enforcement."
Apparently that wouldn't keep him from his "other work to do on the causes of and fixes for the financial crisis!"
