Congressional Service Integrity Act?

Senator Kent Conrad and some of his associates are concerned that the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional laws that made lying about serving in the US armed forces. He wants a new Military Service Integrity Act which would be an end run against the Court ruling. I think Conrad has a good idea. How about making illegal lying in Congress? You know, the stuff about Obama being a Muslim born in Kenya or Death Panels in the new health care law. Or, how about lying concerning supporting legislation in  order to get money from lobbyists?

I term the new law: Congressional Service Integrity Act. If this was passed the halls of Congress would be empty except for a few souls who actually have some integrity.
