Brad, Meet Mr. Abramoff

He goes by Brad. Brad is a typical liberal. A liberal who only likes to see one side of any given story; his side.

Brad has a very liberal blog. On that blog he posts a lot of ridicuous nonsense about how evil the Republicans are and how angelicly pure the Democrats are.
It's his blog, thats ok.

Brad likes to leave comments here at the HuffCo.
Ridiculous comments.
And I let him because I don't censor (unless it's spam). I welcome people to make comments that show the entire world what they are really made of. Oftentimes liberals return to this blog to delete the comments they have left. That's ok, kinda chickenshit but I understand.

Brad plays by different rules. When you try to leave him a comment on something you've read on his blog, up pops a message informing you that your message will be 'reviewed by Brad' for his 'approval' before it is posted. When you read Brad's 'comment forum' it's all praise and glory for what he has posted or pasted that day.

Today he posted a story called "The Dirty 13". Naturally all were Republicans because there is no corruption in the Democrat ranks. Anyway, I decided to post a response to his hypocrisy, but guess what?
Opposing opinions are not welcomed by Brads comment enabled blog.

Here is what I was trying to post to his 'comments' (laughable) section:
Brad, there were plenty of Democrats that took money from Abramoff. I see you haven't listed any of them. Maybe your google search missed them so I have gone to the trouble to compile this list for your next posting on Abramoff corruption:

31 Democrats asked Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to remove himself from the Abramoff investigation because they feel Abramoff's "dealings with President Bush and others in the administration should compel Gonzales to step aside."

It comes as no surprise that 28 of the 31 Senators who signed the letter alleging a conflict of interest have their own connections to Abramoff.

Harry Reid is deep in the Abramoff scandal, having written four letters helpful to Abramoff clients, and getting donations in return for his actions...

Over the course of three years Reid collected about $68,000 in donations from Abramoff's firm, lobbying partners and clients.

The following are the 28 Democrats who signed the letter accusing Gonzales of a conflict of interest who have taken donations from Abramoff's clients and associates, followed by the amount.

Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) - $2,000
Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) - $21,765
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) - $12,950
Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) - $22,500
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) - $20,250
Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) - $14,792
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) - $14,000
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) - $2,000
Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) - $1,250
Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) - $45,750
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI) - $9,000
Sen. Jim Jeffords (I-VT) - $2,000
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) - $3,300
Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) - $95,550
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) - $28,000
Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) - $6,000
Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) - $10,550
Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) - $78,991
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) - $20,168
Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) - $7,500
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) - $2,300
Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) - $3,500
Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) - $4,000
Sen. Ken Salazar (D-CO) - $4,500
Sen. Paul Sarbanes (D-MD) - $4,300
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) - $29,550

LOL. As I am sure you are aware Kevin, I too have my little liberals friends.

Often they feel that it is o.k. to not only bash what I write, but even throw in the odd death threat or so.

But, HOW DARE I TRY TO REPSOND!!!! On their blog. No way, I either get deleted or they never approve it. Even when I keep it clean, and reasonable.

So much for freedom of speach.

As for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., he has received $47,000 from Abramoff associates and Indian tribes he represented and does not plan to give it away.

Reid noted (http://news.rgj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060105/NEWS10/601050358&SearchID=73231629413008)that both he and fellow Nevada Senator John Ensign (R) "each have a long record of opposing the type of expansion of Indian gaming proposed by the Jena Band," and thus, their votes to oppose a nearby casino (allegedly the reason the tribe made the contribution) was completely within their voting character and was not motivated by campaign donations.

The media, and others are also ignoring the fact that Native Americans are a traditional constituency of the contemporary Democratic Party and, as such, tend to contribute to Democrats more than Republicans.

For example, this passage, as reported by Bloomberg is telling:

"Abramoff's tribal clients continued to give money to Democrats even after he began representing them, although in smaller percentages than in the past."

This means that the Tribes were actually donating MORE (in percentage terms) to Democrats BEFORE Abramoff began allegedly directing funds through them.

And even if Abramoff's Indian clients were somehow his legitimate 'agents', they would still be particular to the political right as these tribes were "the only ones among the top 10 tribal donors in the US to donate more money to Republicans than Democrats."
