I don't understand conservatives

This seems odd. Adam is complaining about the ethics process in the legislature. When I first started to read it, I thought he was going to say that the process is lame and lets legislators get away with way too much. Since that's my view, I should have known that wasn't where Adam was headed.

Adam is sticking up for Phil Hart and complaining that the ethics process is either silly or corrupt. He doesn't like it that the ethics panel is continuing to investigate Hart. Adam writes:
What this abuse of the ethics process is about is a media, leftist, and establishment vendetta against a conservative lawmaker. The left wingers have little power in our state. However, if they can, through a series of continual attacks, bring a conservative down, they can at least feel as if they’re powerful for a few days.
So he's blaming "leftists" and apparently Democrats. Not exactly sure. But what's funny is this.
House Speaker Lawerence Denney said today that Rep. Eric Anderson’s removal as vice-chairman of the House State Affairs Committee - shortly after Anderson had filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Phil Hart - was merely an oversight, but also said he’d warned Anderson of “fallout” if he filed the ethics complaint.
Eric Anderson is a Republican from Priest Lake. So, perhaps Adam views Anderson as a RINO and therefore a leftist. Or, perhaps he just blames we leftys for anything he doesn't like.
