It’s Getting Hot in Here
With nearly three pages of the Scanlon plea dedicated to "Representative No. 1" (a/k/a Bob Ney), the Mayor of Capitol Hill is in some pretty hot water. But he’s not the only one.
Thus far, media reports have put Tom Delay, John Doolittle, Conrad Burns, Ralph Reed, Grover Norquist and a host of other Republican congresspeople and staffers in the hot water as well.
Between Ney’s Abramoff problem, and the Noe scandal engulfing the Ohio GOP (inlcuding a plea from the sitting governor, Bob Taft, already), Ohio represents a political bellweather that is ripe for the picking.
The question is, how best to do it? (And this kind of crap is not what I mean.) Work and ideas from everyone who supports a progressive agenda is going to be required. What do you say we start working…yesterday…on some forward motion.
(Josh Marshall has more on the SunCruz portion of the Abramoff investigation, too.)
