    Barbara Boxer maintains a small lead over Carly Fiorina, in spite of the blogosphere reporting on two scandals involving the incumbent Democrat.

Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) has been playing a game that would make Jack Abramoff blush, a game that can best be described using the language of “Get Smart’s” Maxwell Smart as “the ole family-profiting-off-of-the-Indian-tribe-that-you-created trick.” Here’s the story. In 1998, Lynn Woolsey introduced legislation reinstating an Indian tribe in the wine country of Northern California that had been declared defunct by the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1958. None of the Indians of...

In 1998, Lynn Woolsey introduced legislation reinstating an Indian tribe in the wine country of Northern California that had been declared defunct by the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1958. None of the Indians of the tribe objected at that time; they received a payment and went about their lives. The Woolsey bill would reinstate the tribe...

    In 2006, Democrats successfully won back control of Congress by highlighting corruption scandals involving Jack Abramoff, a lobbyist specializing in Indian tribes.  But does one Democrat in particular have a problem of her own with her interventions on behalf of a California tribe that now operates a casino just outside of San Francisco?  Barbara Boxer pushed a bill reinstating a tribe designated as “defunct” by the BIA 40 years earlier.  Rick Manning at The Hill says the deal — and what ensued — would have “made Jack Abramoff blush”: {Update: Withdrawn by The Hill.  See Update III below.] Manning also...
