    Abramoff's Libbo-Nazi / DNC Gravy Train Derailed

    Well, well, well.....It appears that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. I can hardly wait for an indictment slapped on the bulbous forehead of good 'ol Harry. Hmmmmm....That would mean he would have to step down as Senate minority leader. Very interesting indeed!

    (excerpt)
    A Justice Department investigation into influence-peddling on Capitol Hill is focusing on a "first tier" of lawmakers and staffers, both Republicans and Democrats, say sources close to the probe that has netted guilty pleas from lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
    Law-enforcement authorities and others said the investigation's opening phase is scrutinizing Sens. Conrad Burns, Montana Republican; Byron L. Dorgan, North Dakota Democrat; and Minority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, along with Reps. J.D. Hayworth, Arizona Republican, and Bob Ney, Ohio Republican.
    A source working with the Justice Department on the investigation told The Washington Times that Abramoff was questioned during several interviews about the lawmakers and their purported ties to the lobbyist and his former clients.
    The source said prosecutors asked Abramoff whether the lawmakers had performed "official acts" in exchange for campaign cash or other favors. Although it is unknown whether any of the five will be charged in the case, the source said Abramoff was being "prepped" by five Justice Department attorneys in that event.

    Yes, Harry Reid would have to step down, if the same standards apply.

    But the libbies say that only Republicans are lying scumbags and corrupt. I hope Harry gets caught for taking dirty money AND lying to investigators. That would be hilarious if he got busted for something as stupid as is accused of Libby.

    The Democrats do not have the same standards actually. While the Republicans have a "rule" in place that says if you are INDICTED you must step down, the Dems rule is if you are CONVICTED.
