The Fix takes Manhattan!

Posting has been -- and will continue to be -- slow today as the Fix is in the Big Apple for meetings (read: buying Magnolia cupcakes for Mrs. Fix and Fix-in-laws).

But, as always when we travel, we get to catch up on some reading including a bunch of stories we (and maybe you) missed over the past few days.

Here's a sampling:

* Patrick Kennedy talks (and talks) to the Post's Phil Rucker about why he is leaving Congress -- among other things.

* New York Timesman Peter Baker on White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.

* The Atantic's Josh Green on Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

Hey Chris:

You near midtown? We should do lunch.

Enjoy Manhattan. Say hi to Keen while you're there. She'll be with the SoS.

Yup, yup. It will be fun to see Republicans try and prevent Democrats from getting rid of the Cornhusker Kickback.

The Senate Parliamentarian has ruled that Obama MUST sign the Senate health care bill into law BEFORE the Senate can take up the reconciliation bill.

So, forget it folks.

Updated 1:32 p.m.

By Ben Pershing

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) introduced a bill Thursday calling for the House ethics committee to restart its probe of ex-Representative Eric Massa (D-N.Y.), as Republicans seek to focus attention on what Democratic leaders knew about Massa's behavior and when they knew it.

Rather than approve the measure outright, the House voted, 402 to 1, to refer the bill to the ethics committee. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) was the lone "no" vote, and 15 lawmakers -- many of them members of the ethics panel -- voted "present."

Though technically the panel is now under no obligation to act, it is likely the committee will follow the instructions laid out in Boehner's resolution.

The bill directs the ethics committee "to investigate fully ... which House Democratic leaders and members of their respective staffs had knowledge prior to March 3, 2010 of the aforementioned allegations concerning Mr. Massa, and what actions each leader and staffer having any such knowledge took after learning of the allegations." The measure orders the panel to report its findings by June 30.

You better not be applying for a job at the Times...

If you are looking for a good place to get dinner I would try Momafuku or the Spotted Pig. Also try and catch a show at the Slipper Room in the lower east side if you are up for a little adventure.
