Graves says bribery "reform" not needed

No amount of legislative reform will make fraud and bribery by lawmakers and lobbyists greater crimes, Northwest Missouri’s congressman believes. “I don’t think you can make it any more illegal,” U.S. Rep. Sam Graves said Thursday. The Republican lawmaker maintains the legal system worked as it dealt with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who this week pleaded guilty to conspiracy and fraud charges, and former Rep. Duke Cunningham, who in November pleaded guilty to accepting bribes.
