A bit of potential hallelujah news from Howie:
The Associated Press has a story out on the wires today that bodes ill for Doolittle, very ill. Many have suspected that Abramoff has been supplying federal investigators with information about his former congressional crony Doolittle. And the involvement in the case of the Abramoff-Doolittle go-between, another GOP criminal, Kevin Ring, seemed to seal the fates of both Doolittle and his moll/wife, Julie. Their home and offices were raided by the FBI and evidence was hauled away.
But today’s news involves yet another top Doolittle staffer, David Lopez, turning on his former boss. Lopez is cooperating with the FBI as they build a devastating case against Doolittle. Lopez was Doolittle’s chief of staff until 2005– and then his campaign consultant until last year when the roof began collapsing– and according to his attorney, he has provided the FBI with “several hundred pages of campaign finance records… under subpoena.”
I just love the sound of the words “under subpoena” and “Doolittle” in the same sentence. BooYah!
Please keep those calls going on habeas. Thanks for all the calls thus far, gang! Let’s keep that capitol switchboard humming today.
