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?

% Total Dollar Amounts etc etc etc all at the Open Secrets Link. I did a quick and dirty list to grab people's attention. Those interested in more data and different data can get it at Open Secrets.org. DO not get it twisted. There is PLENTY of muck to go around. The POINT is how come our self proclaimed "Public Watch Dogs" in the Junk Media do not have this data"????? The DEMOCRATS, not the Republicans, are proclaiming it PROOF of corruption to "know Jack". Ok, what does that say about THEM then that they DO know Jack???

Did you hear what Reid said about the money he got? He said he was NOT going to return his money because "it is a Republican problem and that he didn't do anything wrong." Can you believe the nerve of that man? Right before he said that Hillary said she was donating her money to charity. But.......she didn't do anything wrong either........They're all innocent.......because it's a Republican problem. LOL

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.

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'

Gee curious how your "news site" does NOT mention a SINGLE Democrat getting Abrhamhoff money despite the fact any number of them have been sited, such as Byron Dorgan, in the ABC/CBS/NBC et al Media as GIVING the money to Charity? How come your website does NOT site THAT Democrat known to have gotten Abramoff money?

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.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/686195/posts

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!

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?????

To be fair, those numbers are his personal donations and those of tribal clients. His personal donations are all (R), you can see them here: http://www.capitaleye.org/abramoff_donor.asp

The question now is: did he handle the contributions from his tribal clients? If so, then yes, Dems did get money from him. If the tribes/casinos acted on their own then Howie Dean may be technically correct.

Irrelevant hair splitting. If you accept the Democrat claim that money from Abramoff is corrupting his limited personal donations are CONSIDERABLY less corrupting then the Ten of THOUSANDS of dollars his PAC shoveled out. The Democrats are basically trying to make this argument

"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?

I completely agree. Was this his PAC or were the tribes operating on their own?

Because it is a fraud made up Leftist "news" site.

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.
