"I am sorry for my wrongdoing. I fully accept the responsibility for my conduct and the consequences it may have. When a Senate committee asks questions, they must be answered fully and completely and it is not my place to decide whether those questions are relevant or too personal." -- Steven Griles, the president's former No. 2 man at the Interior Department, pleading guilty to lying to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee about his relationship with disgraced GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
