Abramoff Gave to Democrats, Too

In their haste to make political hay over Jack Abramoff’s connections to Republican lawmakers, the dem/leftists have hit a bump in the road. Look likes Abramoff also gave heavily to some big name dem/leftists, including, Patrick J. Kennedy, Harry Reid, Tom Daschle and Dick Gephardt. You can see more on this here.

"The Democrats’ hope of capitalizing on the investigation into lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s connections to Republican lawmakers has been dealt a serious blow by the revelation that he funneled money to Democrats as well.

Abramoff and an associate solicited millions of dollars from six Indian tribes with gambling interests and steered the money to powerful legislators – including top Democrats, a new Washington Post probe disclosed.

"Democrats are hoping to gain political advantage from federal and Senate investigations of Abramoff’s activities and from the embattled lobbyist's former ties to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay," the Post reported.
"Yet many Democratic lawmakers also benefited from Abramoff's political operation, a fact that could hinder the Democrats' efforts to turn the lobbyist’s troubles into a winning partisan issue.""

Lookslike the dem/leftists have some skeletons in their closets as well. It will be very interesting to see how they try and spin their way out of this one. The fact that this has appeared in the Washington Post, will make it difficult for the dem/leftists to use their usual media allies to make any attempt to bury this or make it go away. - Sailor
