How It Unraveled

-- by Dave Johnson

OK, this one - about the unfolding Abramoff Republican corruption scandal - should generalte a nice, long comment thread.

From Raw Story: How they got caught: After lobbyist broke off engagement, ex-fiance told of illicit dealings to FBI

Miller went to the FBI after Scanlon broke off their engagement and announced his intention to marry another woman.

... While still engaged to Miller, Scanlon had started an affair with a manicurist and broke up with Miller because he planned to marry the other woman.

Heh. So ALL the right-wingers in Washington remained silent. Not one whistleblower, until this. Heh.

The repugs learned well from Watergate (about keeping their mouths shut and thugging others to keep quiet), but apparently learned nothing from Monicagate!

It seems most skulduggery only comes to light when men/women are dumped by their lovers ..
