Democrat ties to Jack Abramoff

Al Franken is never at a loss for words and charges of corruption against Republicans, particulalry those Republicans who are also of the Christian faith, when the topic of indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff comes up.

In his recent book, which isn't doing quite as well as his last, Franken took special glee in referring to Abramoff as a "hard charging Orthodox Jew." It makes people on the left feel better when a supposed religious person gets caught up in legal trouble so secularists can feel good about themselves when they get in trouble.

But I digress.

In today's New York Post, Ian Bishop writes that Democrat Congressman Charles Rangel, the ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committe, has taken more money from American Indian Tribes tied to Abramoff than almost any other Democrat in the House.

According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Rangels take of $36,000 from two different Indian Tribes ranks him third amongst all House Democrats.

According to the column, Rangel has no intention of returning any of the money.

Think we'll hear from Al on this?

:lol:

Wow! That's almost a third of the $115,000 that Tom DeLay's wife made!

No Al, probably won't talk about this, things that don't matter to more than one person aren't usually good topics for a broadcast.
