  •  It is in fact... (none)
    necessary to keep track of true and not true. But they aren't working with absolutes...they are working with language that sees to blur the lines in order to argue that what they did wasn't so bad...cause "see Dems took the money too". That worked so well when it came to Ken Lay, they're going to use it again and again.

    There are a few problems with that. Funds were raised from the "Abramoff related" tribes. That's different than taking money from Abramoff or Abramoff's PAC. For Dorgan's part, those funds were also reported to the FEC per the rules. Or he reimbursed the tribes when he realized that there was something fishy going on...

    That's why diaries like the "Zero" one are important. They aren't the whole ballgame...but they are important. They're part of the "being aware of what's true."

    They start to make the point that this particular albatross is a GOP one...regardless.

    Dorgan and Reid both represent states with a high Native American population. It makes sense that they would advocate for the tribes...and receive funds from the tribes...and report those funds to the FEC.
