Stop me if you've heard this one.
Rep. Tom Feeney, Republican, former Speaker of the Florida House, running-mate of Jeb Bush and all around GOP foot soldier, is in trouble again.
This time, according to the St. Petersburg Times, the FBI is checking-up on Fenney's cozy relations with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. In particular, the feds are looking into a gold-star, elitist, all expenses paid golfing junket Feeney and Abramoff took to Scotland in 2003.
According to the story, Feeney has said for years he had no idea Abramoff paid for the trip. But this smoking gun email that connects Abramoff to Feeney and this trip blows that lie apart.
According to this new email, not only did Feeney know, he grossly underestimated the cost of the trip -- a scant $5,600.
And now the feds are on the case. Yikes.
