top aide to Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., hosted two fundraisers for Democratic lawmakers during the wave elections of 2006 and 2008 at the home in which she lives and which she rents to her boss.
Kay Webber is Cochran's longtime executive assistant, someone so important to his duties that she frequently travels with him on official trips overseas. Cochran lists the basement apartment of her home on Maryland Avenue NE in Washington as his local residence.
"Cochran spokesman Jordan Russell and others say Webber, 76, who has worked for the senator for 33 years, is a key employee and trusted advisor," per the Clarion Ledger.

In one case, the house was used as a substitute for Democratic National Committee headquarters, when a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser for Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was postponed from June 3, 2008, to June 24, 2008. The June 24 event was a "Texas Style Barbecue" at the Webber House, according to Sunlight Foundation records. The event invitation also mentioned Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. Before the 2008 cycle, DCCC had previously hosted a campaign fundraiser at the Webber house on June 21, 2006, for Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.

Democrats and Republicans are pretty interchangeable these days
tHAD enough ping
I am leaving for Jackson to get shot in the back. If anything needs pinging some who you who always manage to always posts but never ping anyone to a Ms thread try it sometime. It is really not that hard to do.
I don’t have a copy of the list hun. Lemme look on your profile page.
The McDaniel Camp needs to jump on this like a hungry dog on a ham bone.
I bet Cochran got some big, big points plus-up from the Democratic party for keeping his Democrat traitor executive assistant employed.
There is simply no excuse for this other than Cochran is a frigging Vichy RINO.
Wonder what Miss Kay’s voter registration has been over the years.
senator cochran, sheila jackson lee’s best friend
Well, gollee ol’ Thad doesn’t mind paying that rent a bit. In fact, she may even give him a discount *wink*. That “till death us do part” is for the Little People.
They seem to service each other rather than do what is right for the country, ya think?
Cochran’s not just a RINO, he’s a Democrat In All But Label Only (DIABLO)/ a member of the republican wing of the democrat party.
May Haley Barbour’s choice be permanently removed from elective office.
DIABLO! Love it!
One big happy family DC.
Have you seen the commercial where it is making a big deal Chris didn’t vote for Haley Barbour? That is funny
