Congressman Darrell Issa’s Exit Interview with Sharyl Attkisson by The Elephant's Child

He’s led many high profile investigations into corruption and fraud. Along the way, he says he’s seen many changes – not for the better. For one, he says party politics and money interests increasingly dominate the Capitol Hill agenda. And believe it or not, he’s not just talking about Democrats.

Darrell Issa was one of the good congressmen. At some point, I guess, you are just ready to give up the battle. He will be sorely missed.
