Culture of Corruption
If you listen to the Democrats, you would think that the only ones to have taken lobbyist money EVER has been the Republicans. Well a report came out this week that says otherwise!
"Since the 1990 election cycle, Democrats have accepted more than $53 million from lobbyists while Republicans have taken more than $48 million for their election campaigns, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. "
Remember, this is the group that has been leading the charge against Tom DeLay! Even they admit that the Dems are equally culpable in this. Not only do we have the Abramoff ties to Dems (Harry Reid for one did indeed help Abramoff clients contrary to his denials) we have this:
"Then came the allegations last August that Jefferson had orchestrated a corruption scheme. Federal investigators are targeting the Democratic congressman, 58, for allegedly demanding cash and other favors for himself and relatives, in exchange for using his congressional clout to arrange African business deals. A former aide recently pleaded guilty to bribing Jefferson and is cooperating with authorities, and sources familiar with the case say a plea agreement with the lawmaker is being explored."
It just goes to show (yet again) that the Dems have nothing to offer the electorate (since they refuse to put out an agenda) other than attacks that are not based in any sort of fact.
