Unlike the efforts to tar Dennis Hastert with the acts of Mark Foley, or to tar President Bush for the acts of Al Qaeda, the Democrats have some serious issues to face. And one of them is a long time in finally coming to a head. That would be what in the world was Sandy Bergler, sorry, Berger doing when he stole classified documents from the National Archives which pertained to the investigations into 9-11 and then took them to his office where he cut them up with scissors (all accidentally of course)? Well maybe now we will get more of the picture if Congress does perform an investigation.
The second scandal brewing is with Senate Minority Leader Reid’s fishy land deals and amazing profit windfalls. The man turned $400K into a cool $1.1M in a land deal he seems to have tried to hide from public scrutiny. Now I am not tarring all Democrats with these acts, unless they try and distract from the proper scrutiny these acts deserve.
Update:Ed Morrissey has done some digging and has made the case that the Reid transaction looks like a payoff in return for Reid assisting ‘the developer’ he bought the land from in getting help from the US Government to make tens of millions of dollars in real estate. The fact Reid is hiding the transaction from We The People while he worked diligently for years to help the developer make his profits is a clear ‘signal’ something is not kosher here. If the Dems are all about ‘signals’ of illegal behavior, Reid is lit up like Time Square at New Years Eve right now. He should step down.
