Republican viral video and politics

The Post’s Al Kamen notes (the second item in the article) a Republican video reportedly on its way to viral status and allegations about House ethics rules.   (The video is here.)  What makes a video viral aside, the article discusses the ethics angle.

In any event, two experts on ethics law said Tuesday that they doubt any rules were violated. “It’s no more or less political than many” of messages transmitted “on both sides,” said Rob Walker, former chief counsel of the Senate and House ethics committees. It would have to be “much more overtly campaign-related,” he added.

Here’s another video Kamen might consider; check the ending.  Also, if you search the White House website, there are 175 hits for “Boehner.”
