You must not have heard what he whispered during the commercial break. What he really said was, "No one-armed,redheaded democrats from my home town in Vermont took any of Jack's money between the hours of 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Lenin's birthday."

Yeah, but he didn't get any legislation votes as return favors...
Instead, she probably gave him her personal favors...

No paper trail...

I keep hearing that some Republicans also took money - does anyone have the list? Brit Hume referred to the GOP participation yesterday.

Technically, Dean is correct. Abramoff himself gave no money to Democrats, though of course his clients did.

It would just be easier to find out who didn't take the money. I haven't seen Vitter's name yet. From reading the article it looks like the money was spread out fairly equally between the two parties.

Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), who received at least $28,000 in Abramoff-linked cash.

Is Ms. Landrool going to donate her ill-gotten booty to her poor, downtrodden, homeless, car-less, hungry, ill-educated, discriminated-against, Bush-wacked constituents in New Orleans? NAH -- didn't think so -- that money is LONG gone!

The sad thing, is that the amounts of money he gave to any politician seem almost like pocket change, so huge is the amount of money pumped into the system each election cycle.

"Technically, Dean is correct. " BINGO! You are correct. And something about the thinkin' behind this arrangement stinks! Was it a play for Jack to say to the Repubs, "Better protect me guys!" Smells like blackmail to me!

I guess they assumed was a bagman, just as Lyndon Johnson was the bagman for Texas oilmen. It was this money that brought Johnson into his leadship position in the Democratic Party. That, not his "charming" personality.
