Let's repeat that: Patches Kennedy got more Abramoff money than Tom DeLay.
Now that's a list.
Maybe someone will post it over on DU eh.
DUmmiefunnies should get a laugh or two out of
all the weasleing!!!
I just sent the list to the democrats on my list that have been very busy sending me stuff about how this will bring down the republican party......yeah right!
Someone should warn the Dims about living in glass houses...
Harry Reid got the SAME amount of money as the "Prince of Darkness" Republican Tom Delay.
And I did it all myself. (With a whole lot of help from Open Secrects.org) :-)
Let me know what ya think
Dats alotta dollars to the Dems. This oughta be FUN!
Correction: "Dats alotta dollars to DU'h Dems" heh heh
Now Johnnie, you know that this is a Republican scandal! /s
I have not yet heard one talking head acknowledge that Harry Reid got a dime. All I hear is that the Republicans got most of the money and Tom DeLay is dirty. SOSDD!
Do you have an accurate percentage breakdown between Repub & Dim totals received?
Yep. Going to be fun watching the rocks fly thur the nice glass house the Democrats seem to have set up just for Freepers. Seems we are the ONLY people who DO NOT know Jack!!!!
Hey Come read this one for me please.
Great list. Let's see how long it takes chrissy matthews or the MSM to mention it.
Is this the same list that came out yesterday?
Sure, it's just the soundbite of the moment. Everybody knew Jack!
Everybody but us it seems. Man we would NOT have needed Freepathon!!!!
Of course, the chef gets a lot more than the busboy - but they both work for the same restaurant...
I would love to know who all Tom Daschle's wife gave money to. Somehow, I just can't believe that she's clean, especially knowing Tommy's name is on the Republican list. Surely he figured out a way to take more from her sources.
If he is throwing out that kind of money (Republican and Democrat}, who is the big cheese on the Dem side?
The Democrats had better be careful how loud they squeal, they have been dirty for sixty years. This will come back to bite them, especially if Abramoff sticks it to the Dems he dealt with.
LOL! Ah, and Nancy Leprosi has already hurled her rocks. If she wasn't "stoned" before, she will be now.
What tickles me is the slef proclaimed paragon of local political virture, the Minnesota DFL, got $9000. I have been emailing that around ALL night. Mn GOP does seem to have EVER gotten ANY money from Jack. The other thing that REALLY ticks me off is how the Republican Bush Justice Department, who is the one BUSTING this wide open gets ZERO credit from the self proclaimed "People's Watch dog" the Junk Media. OH yeah, got to go send this to Bill O'
looks like these media darling angels are caught with their halos at their ankles!
GREAT WORK as usual Johnnie
Don't forget to include the fact that Dingy Harry's legal counsel was a lobbyist for Abramhoff's firm since 2003 when you email Bill O. One of the clients that Reid's legal counsel lobbied - TYCO! (info courtesy of Capital Eye)
the dems always have to wrap their news into a popular slogan or a clever line or a hollywood-inspired gibble-gabble ... they're just plain boring..... as well as guilty
Hey come mer' for a min and read this one please.
I wonder what Duke Cunningham was wearing the wire for then. His name isn't on the list.
Any one seen a list of House members who took money, I'm especially interested in the MSM darling Rep harold ford, JR of Tennessee, the one who wants Frist seat. The one from the MOST corrupt family of pols in Tennessee.
If you follow Newsmeat.com's own Jack Abramoff link to his contributions... it only lists Repubs & Special Interests, no Dems. Why is that? ;)
Could NOT be because it is just another DU style propaganda outlet pretending to be a "news" site???? Did not even read the thread did you Democrat Party activist coming out of the closet? The point, as was make at that start of this thread, was the UTTER hypocrisy of DEMOCRATS running an AD campaign claiming to "Not Know Jack" when the FEC records SHOW they did VERY well know Jack.
Maybe that is WHY you went out and found a rabidly LEFTIST pretend "news" website to post as if that had ANYTHING to do with the point here?
You just could NOT bear to see the truth be told about your Democrat idols could you? Could NOT stand to see ANOTHER Democrat PR play BLOW up in your master's faces?
See if you ACTUALLY read the link instead of mindlessly follow your Moveon.org paymasters orders you see that the link I posted to Open Secrets posts ALL of Abrhamoff's donations NOT just Republicans LIKE your pet website did. Thanks for COMPLETELY demolishing ANY shred of intellectual credibility you may of ever had here. Perhaps in the future you will learn to ACTUALLY read the thread BEFORE posting such a completely intellectual vacuous response. This IS going to follow you around. Way to blow your cover.
Because it is a fraud made up Leftist "news" site. Guess you did NOT follow the link to Open Secrets.org to see that it lists ALL the facts about Abrhamoff NOT JUST the ones Moveon ordered you to go around the web spreading. YOU are SO nailed. So why DOESN'T your website list the money Byron Dorgan, (D-ND) has ALL ready given to charity cause it came from Abramoff?
HAAAAA, it REALLY sucks to be you. WAY to go way out on a limb and cut it off behind yourself before anyone even response to your 1st post!!!!!HHHHAAAAAAAAA!
Wow. I've run into you around FR several times (Rush live threads and such) and NEVER EVER did I think you'd take me for a leftie troll. Or anyone for that matter.
For a minute there I was confused, thinking you were posting to someone else, then I saw you had responded to me twice. With lots of CAPITAL LETTERS and EXCLAMATION POINTS! How dramatic.
FYI: I linked Newsmeat's page on Abramoff, complete with the winking smiley face, because I was laughing that THEY had outed themselves as lefties, finally. Newsmeat has been used on this forum frequently to show similar contributions to and from pols.. there have often been discrepancies with what is shown in Open Secrets.
But because that page only listed Rep's as receiving any money from Abramoff - you attack me?
Oh yes. You caught me - I'm a TROLL.
Here's one of my favorite threads, FYI #2.
I did it. All by myself! And I even used YOUR Open Secrets website. No "masters" involved. And I did it well before you signed up for this forum, that I happen to make monthly contributions to. So much for your great AH-HA!
Where did you ever get the idea that my comment on this thread was my first post? Do you know how to use "in forum"?
I bet you reported abuse on me... what a JOKE. Now I have a real-live example of JUMPING THE COUCH! to show my husband. And from a FReeper no less!
RE: Post numbers 36 and 37. It looks to me like MNJohnnie is off his meds. Somebody take away his firearms before he hurts himself or an innocent bystander. ;^)
That was my initial thought... that or too much drinking on Saturday. Either way, he never responded, though I've seen him around. Perhaps he forgot and has no memory of what he accused me of? ;)
Stranger things have happened than someone abandoning their own GOTCHA thread (Gotcha as in the Open Secrets revelations).
Interesting to note my Freepmail on this. Amazing how some supposedly "Conservatives" Freepers are so desperate to make excuse for, or ignore, that the Democrats up to their eyeballs in this. The point, as some of you fail to grasp, is that Democrats are equally guilty of "Corruption" while lying daily to the American people about their part in this. This is NOT an excuse for Republicans. Republicans are NOT making excuses for those Republicans caught up in this. The purpose of the list is to show the Democrat Party's Culture of Hypocrisy. The Democrats are the ones running all over screaming "Corruption" Ok, so if it is "Corruption" why are they up to their eyeballs in it?????
"Yeah, I took money from the Mafia but it ONLY came from their legitimate business not from illegal drug sale profits" Sorry if the Democrats want to try and make that argument the American Voters will laugh them to scorn. IF money from Abramoff is "proof of corruption" his PERSONAL donation is NO different then his PAC donations.
Funny how it is the Republican Bush Justice Department that broke this wide open by going after and prosecuting Abramoff. Funny how all the people who want to make this a "Republican scandal" are so desperate to just skip right by that fact. Why is that?
Dude, I (as well as many other Freepers) use newsmeat.com all the time and there is ZERO doubt in my mind that the data they present is unbiased. You are way off base (and apparently your meds) with these comments
Perhaps you don't remember Jeb Eddy? This fool:
It was a search on newsmeat that exposed this fraud back to 1999.
Sometimes you have to be man enough to deal with facts, instead of putting your hands over your ears and yelling "la la la la" as loud as you can. Leave that behavior to the DU 'mos.
