    talk about all the documents that were never released. You hear that too? I hope so....

    In the end, Abramoff wasn't a saint, but ironically the Washington Post, McCain, and the Justice Department were the villains, a most counterintuitive conclusion.

    The problem for me with McCain was his utter mendacity in his report. He also employed an underhanded tactic. He only released about 2% of the Abramoff documents he had subpoenaed, which meant that independent investigators like me could not confirm McCain's conclusions. (Of course, I was able to get some of these documents.) It made me wonder if McCain is also withholding information about what really occurred during his 5 1/2 years as a POW, not consistent with his claims in his multiple autobiographies.

    My signature beat up your signature.
