The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is going after Republicans with a new website detailing their scandals, according to the Huffington Post.

The website, at houseofscandal.com, will list all Republicans who have faced ethics questions and investigations since the GOP won the House in 2010. This is the reprise of a website the committee created in 2006. Democrats are looking to the site to help their push to keep President Obama in office and regain some congressional seats at the same time.

"Voters are finding out that Republicans leaders have zero intention of carrying through on their zero-tolerance pledge for Republicans' ethics scandals and corruption," said DCCC spokesman Jesse Ferguson. He added, "Each month it seems another scandal-plagued Republican is revealed. Republicans' top priorities are their special-interest allies, ultra-wealthy campaign contributors, their campaign treasuries and their personal bank accounts -- not the best interest of middle-class families and seniors."

Republicans listed on the site include Reps. Pete Sessions of Texas, Frank Guinta of New Hampshire, Gary Miller of California, Tim Griffin of Arkansas and Mary Bono Mack of California. The DCCC will name a new Republican member to the list each month.
