Pete Stark Turning Over A New Leaf?

Rep. Mike Honda, D-Calif., set up a congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus at the end of June. The group aims to address the problems faced by people who are "physically or psychologically attacked on the basis of their skin color, ethnicity, physical or mental abilities, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, religion, or age," according to the caucus's website.

Among the charter members of the caucus is Democratic Rep. Pete Stark, who must be aiming to turn over a new leaf. Stark accused Democratic challenger Eric Swalwell of taking bribes at a debate earlier this year without anything in the way of supporting evidence. We wonder what former GOP Reps. Scott McInnis and Nancy Johnson, among many others, would have to say about their combustible ex-colleague's inclusion in a group that aims to combat aggressive behavior.
