Sock puppetry has finally made this forum almost totally useless as a discussion platform. Welcome!

The reason Democrats are nearly silent on Abramoff

Because not only is this going to be the downfall of Delay, but the net is cast very wide indeed.

Republicans win the horse race with $3.41E6 compared to Dem's $1.88E6. But what the hell.

I hope he spills his guts all over the Senate floor. Should be great entertainment.

Forgot one thing:

It'll come down to who did the "quid pro quo".

Wonder if he'll squeel on Dems or Reps worse. Who is running the justice department these days?

Actually, to be fair - he was spending the money where it mattered, and since the Republicans have been the majority party, they own all the committees...

And what you own you can apparently sell.

The individual dollar amounts don't seem very impressive though. $70K for a house majority leader? I couldn't even get the car I want at that price. Hey, maybe I'll get a Toyota and own a chunk of the US legislature instead!

If a Senate seat costs about $1M to win, 70k is about 7%... not exactly huge, but still significant.
