Some Dems Now In Scandal Cross Hairs

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 […]
