Well, looks like the Democrats have stepped on their own (Blank) in going after Tom Delay. The story is leaking out all over the sephere this morning… that Harry Reid has a number of his family working for him. So do a number of other Democrats… and for similar per- annum dollar figures. NewsMax reports that:

Nevada Democrat once sponsored an environmental bill that he touted as a bipartisan measure to protect the ecosystem and help the economy in America’s fastest-growing state.

But as the LA Times reported: “What Reid did not explain was that the bill promised a cavalcade of benefits to real estate developers, corporations and local institutions that were paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in lobbying fees to his sons’ and son-in-law’s firms, federal lobbyist reports show.”

It gets better:

Turns out that the Reid family gravy train relied on some of America’s biggest corporate names.

The Howard Hughes Corp. alone paid $300,000 to attorney and son-in-law Steven Barringer to push a provision allowing the company to acquire 998 acres of federal land near booming Las Vegas. According to the Times, other provisions of Reid’s legislation were intended to benefit a real estate development headed by a senior partner in the Nevada law firm that employs all four of the Senate minority leader’s sons.

Seldom have so many close relatives directly profited off their familial connection to a powerful politician.


It gets even better.
Limbaugh this morning has up a transcript of yesterdays show, wherein he examines the dealings of Pelosi, Boxer Reid and so on.
