It's Recess-time Somewhere

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned

Can one loose-lipped acrimonious jilted bride-to-be bring down a host of Republican Congressmen, the likes of Tom DeLay and Bob Ney?

Scanlon was implicated in the Abramoff scandal by his former
thirtysomething fiancee, Emily J. Miller, whom he met in the late 1990s
while working as communications director for former House Majority
Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), three former associates who worked with
Scanlon at DeLay's office said. Colleagues say Miller went to the FBI
after Scanlon broke off their engagement and announced his intention to
marry another woman.

The way the dominos have fallen so far, is that the Miller ratted out Scanlon, then Scanlon ratted out jack Abramoff. And now Abramoff has agreed to rat out a whole mess of folks, mostly Gee Oh Pee Congress Critters.

Can all the goodies that come out of the Abramoff scandal result in the Democrats taking back the House and Senate in 2006? Will Chimpy get tied in there with Abramoff too? Will I get a pony?

But I have to agree with Tom DeLay's spokesperson here:

"Tom thinks Emily did a fine job for him."

And by golly, I do too!
