How true this is for many a Republican in Washington and across the country. Scandals fly about on the hill about this Republican and that one. Now that Abramoff has pled guilty a Nor'Easter of sorts is tearing through the beltway.

Emily J. Miller is the woman scorned and RawStory has the details to back it up. It seems the press secretary that tried to shut off Colin Powell's interview a while back has resurfaced in a big way.

RawStory reports they have a 'backstory' that shows just how Scanlon, Abramoff ands ultimately dozens of lawmakers are getting taken down.

From the article:

Scanlon was implicated in the Abramoff scandal by his former thirtysomething fiancee, Emily J. Miller, whom he met in the late 1990s while working as communications director for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), three former associates who worked with Scanlon at DeLay's office said. Colleagues say Miller went to the FBI after Scanlon broke off their engagement and announced his intention to marry another woman.

Ouch!!

Scanlon thought he was untouchable. Untouchable by the law and women, his hubris got to him in a really big way. Not only has he pled guilty to bribing congressmen his ex-boss has pled guilty to multiple felonies today, costing him (unearned) millions, ratting out his 'friends' and serving time behind bars.

The article over at RawStory is a true gem. Good for Emily getting Scanlon back for being a prick. Too bad she's pretty scummy to begin with though.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
