Another Democratic Scandal

A few weeks ago, on a Friday night Mark Foley's e-mails and IM's went public, and he resigned within hours. Every major online newscarrier had coverage of the scandal up nearly immediately.

Go to the Washington Post site tonight and seach for Jane Harman, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. Then go to the NY Times, then the LA Times. You'll find articles about her outrage over the removal of a security clearance of a Democratic staffer, who possibly leaked classified material to the NY Times.

What you won't find on them, but will at Time.com, though is an article about Jane being under investigation by the feds for basically buying her seat on the Intelligence committee from Nancy Pelosi, with the help of AIPAC, a pro-Israel lobby group.

I'm not comparing Foley to Harman, or their crimes;I'm just pointing out the media seems to work at a different speed depending on who the allegations are against.

Evidently, according to Time, Harman was lined up to go to bat for some AIPAC folks who were grabbed by the feds for espionage by this same investigation. In exchange, they lobbied for Harman to keep her prime seat on the intel committee by having big money members of the PAC contact the Minority Leader.

It'll be interesting to watch tomorrow's papers and see if any of them mention the investigation.

The Liberal News Media (LNM) has an agenda that seeks to disparage conservatives and their causes, while favoring liberals and their causes. This is a well documented FACT. I have a blog entry relating to this very subject, if anyone is interested. http://777denny.wordpress.com/

As a conservative you hate to sound like a broken record but there is such a huge double standard.
