congress is investigating because there was a report that NHTSB knew about the problem and didn't force a recall. Basically republicans want to see if the Obama administration put pressure on NHTSB to ignore the problem. Just the usual Washington, D.C. BS. Like Robin Williams once said Congress investigating ethics is like a bunch of lepars judging a beauty contest.rockyp said:I just think it's comical that GM (maybe some corruption?) is being investigated by Congress (certainly lots of corruption!).
