Elise Stefanik:Profile in Courage

Office of Congressional Ethics edition.

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik said she opposed the amendment proposed by her colleagues to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics.

She posted that opposition on her Facebook page at 1:30 p.m., which was well after Republicans announced they were backing off on the proposal because of constituent backlash.

As soon as the coast was clear and it was politically expedient to do so. 

When The Post-Star asked Stefanik's spokesperson how she had voted on Monday, he did not answer the question.

Nice transparency, congresswoman.

U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., President-elect Donald Trump nominee for director of the Office of Management and Budget, co-sponsored government transparency legislation Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, introduced in June.

The legislation -- HR 5493 -- would require the Library of Congress to ensure that every version of legislation posted on allows viewers to track any changes made from previous versions of the bill.
