No Virginia, This Isn't a Bipartisan Scandal

On the off chance that you might be under the hynotic spell of the Republican National Congressional Committee, Fox "News" or general Republican talking points, and think that Abramoff gave money to Democrats as well as Republicans, read this.

He gave $172,933 to Republicans and $88,985 to special interest groups.

Not one shiny nickel to Democrats.

It's just too precious when you hear the sheep baa-ing about how Democrats are going to go down to. The money they received from Indian tribes or related groups appears to be completely above board and largely due to their genuine commitment to Native American causes, rather than the unadulterated greed that is so prevalent in the GOP.

TPM Cafe has a nice little run down on who is most likely to have to sit in the naughty chair, and suprisingly enough, none of them are Democrats.

    Have you not heard? Representatives Ney and DeLay have recently turned traitor and joined the Democratic Party!

    While we truly patriotic GOPers will miss their leadership, their defection only proves that the party of Michael Moore is rife with corruption.

    I'd love this to be a GOP-only problem, but several Democrats have already announced that they'd be giving back the money received from Abramoff. Bush, Others Dump Abramoff Donations

    I am sure this will hurt the GOP much more, particularly since they're the current majority, but the Dems aren't going to be unscathed. I think I actually like it that way better anyway.

    however the money that democrats are giving up isn't directly from Ambramoff, it's from lobbying firms and Indian tribes.
