See, we’re ALL sleazebags

Republicans aim to link Democrats to Abramoff

The National Republican Senatorial Committee "is planning a public-relations offensive tying leading Democrats to lobbyist Jack Abramoff in an effort to neutralize accusations that Republicans have been embroiled in a ‘culture of corruption,’" The Hill reports.

A brain-dead idea to be sure, trying to convince that everyone in DC is on the take.

"The campaign will zero in on Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV); Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin, both Michigan Democrats; and the Democratic Senatorial Committee (DSCC), among others, for taking money from Abramoff’s former clients."

I’m sure some Dems did too. Watching the bi-partisan slime turn on each other will be jolly good Xmas fun.

    The Repug strategy will likely succeed because the corruption is so widespread–the same reason we never get any serious campaign finance reform. Both parties may be willing to sacrifice one or two wayward Congresscritters, but they’ll team up to make sure it goes no farther than that. Without the political support of either major party, and with the courts packed with Reagan and Bush appointees, prosecutors will have a very hard time expanding the case beyond a few “bad apples.”

    Stabenow and Levin both voted against the war; they may be being punished for that.
