Bi-Partisan Corruption

From Neal Boortz:

LOBBYIST PLEADS GUILTY

This story has the potential to set off an absolute political earthquake in Washington. Jack Abramoff, a disgraced lobbyist who pled guilty to several charges in federal court yesterday, spread a lot of money around on Capitol Hill. The media has been pushing Abramoff's ties to Republicans in Congress...but it looks like both parties are involved on this one, all the way to the top of the Democratic leadership.

According to CNN, Abramoff is providing thousands of e-mails to investigators in which he described influence peddling with members of Congress...in other words, the favors he was getting in return for the money he was donating to their campaigns. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Abramoff is the tip of the iceberg...


It seems that Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid was one of his biggest customers. How will the MSN handle this? You can read the whole thing HERE.

I hope every last one of the guilty are exposed. However I fear in the end its a witch hunt for Bush

If the media has it's way, it will be. But that is what blogs are for. We will NOT let the MSN choose for us what we give our attention to. A scandal like this should have all involved parties reported on equally. If the MSN plays favorites, they must be called on it.
