John and Julie Doolittle - Feeling Heat in the Home Office?

Today's San Diego Union Tribune story regarding the remarkably beneficial financial relationship between Representative John Doolittle (CA-4) and his chief fundraiser (who also happens to be his wife - Julie) is finally starting to generate some interest among the "big time" blogs. Artrios comments on the Doolittle's 15% "off the top" scam here. Although, his link is to this post over at TPM.

It's good to see the big dogs start to feed on a story we posted about here at Words Have Power way back in December. That piece put all the major players (John, Julie, Jack, Brent and Tom) in the Doolittle saga together and highlighted Julie's home business, its financial contribution to the Doolittle family and its links to Abramoff and Delay.
