Interesting. I'm curious as to what the ABA is authorized to do (if anything) at the end of the investigation.

Yeah.  SCOTUS struck down the line-item veto; how can this be judged differently?
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

If anything, it's more obnoxious than the line item veto.  What Bush is basically doing is deleting Congress' power to override an executive veto from Art. I, s. 7 by fiat.
