Salazar vows review of Interior scandals

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is calling for a top-to-bottom review of ethical misconduct and reforms at the Interior Department, raising the possibility that investigations closed by the Bush administration may be reopened. Appearing at the White House, Salazar told reporters Wednesday the department over the last eight years "has been tarnished by ethical lapses and criminal behavior that has extended to the very highest levels of government." He said he wants his own review of what happened, what has been done to address it and what steps still need to be taken.
