Doolittle....A Crook!

So John Doolittle's (CA-4) wife was paid $67,000 working for Jack Abramoff? She earned it working on a fund raiser that was cancelled and promoting Abramoff restaurant, Signatures. It's all so innocent. The fact that most of her earning came after the cancellation of the fund raiser shouldn't matter. Nor should the fact that she was not paid by Abramoff or Signatures, but by Abramoff's lobbying firm, Greenberg Traurig, give anyone pause. Leave it to TMP Muckraker to make a big deal out of this.

Apparently, the liberals over at TPM Muckraker don't understand that no one in Doolittle's right wing district cares about his corruption. His constituents will re-elect him even if he is incarcerated. Same story for Jerry Lewis (CA-41), who is likely to end up in the same cell block as Doolittle, corrupt to the core and a shoe-in for re-election.
