Democrats and Abramoff

| | Comments (0)
In the last week or so, many examples of Democrats receiving money from groups tied closely to Abramoff have emerged. The Democrats rightly respond that they had no idea of Abramoff's involvement and that they did not solicit the money and they were in no way influenced by it, that it was perfectly legal, and that the money had nothing whatsoever -- as far as they were concerned -- to do with Abramoff or his corruption.

The problem is, that they used the exact same sort of evidence against many Republicans over the past several months, in an attempt to make the scandal look more pervasive than it actually is. And now it's coming back to bite them.

So expect no sympathy from me, Senators Durbin and Reid. You made your bed, now lie in it.
