First Ringer has just about the best thing I've seen about the Abramoff scandal.
Money (heh heh) quote:
Abramoff’s Republican connections are no secret. After all, the conservative lobbyist helped give $478,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee and $436,000 to the National Republican Senate Committee. Unfortunately for Democrats, he also gave $423,000 to the Democratic Senate Caucus Committee and $354,000 to the Democratic Congressional Caucus Committee. In fact, Abramoff’s list is littered with Democrats. From Rhode Island Rep. Patrick Kennedy ($42,500), to the aforementioned Washington Sen. Patty Murray ($40,980), and more well-known Democrats such as Rep. Charley Rangel ($36,000), Sen. Byron Dorgan ($28,000), former Sen. Tom Daschle ($26,500), Sen. Tom Harkin ($15,500) and even Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid ($30,000). In all, Abramoff and Co. gave $4,434,761 over the last six years to both parties. Why, there’s even a little $9,000 contribution to the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party with Abramoff’s fingerprints on it, but not a contribution to the Minnesota GOP state party.Read the whole thing.
