Associated Press "Pay no attention to the Reid behind the curtain"

The AP:

"WASHINGTON - Aides to Sen. Conrad Burns, R-Mont., said Tuesday the senator will not return donations from indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates, because the money has been spent.

Burns received about $150,000 in donations from Abramoff, his firm and his clients between 2001 and 2004.

North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan, the top Democrat on the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, said Monday that he is returning $67,000 in donations from the controversial lobbyist and his associates."

Fine, make him return it.....But fair is fair right?

So what about Senator Reid?

"Senate Democratic Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) sent a letter to Norton on March 5, 2002, also signed by Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev). The next day, the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana issued a $5,000 check to Reid's tax-exempt political group, the Searchlight Leadership Fund. A second Abramoff tribe also sent $5,000 to Reid's group. Reid ultimately received more than $66,000 in Abramoff-related donations from 2001 to 2004."

Gee, would just about be $67,000....

I guess to be "Fair and Balanced", the AP should be asking Senator Reid when he plans to return his money? After all, "innocent" Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan is paying back his $67,000. Tit-for-tat mate?

White they're at it, they could even cover some of these other stories as well.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
