More On Dem Ethics

Over at Brit Hume's Political Grapevine, he has a little blurb about Rahm Emmanuel's lies and the Dems shopping the Mark Foley scandal around hoping for a break just before the midterms. How nice of the MSM to oblige!

The man who ran the Democratic effort to retake the House apparently knew about the Mark Foley e-mails in the fall of 2005 — despite his statements to the contrary when the scandal broke this September.

Published reports say Rahm Emanuel learned about the e-mails from a staffer. But when asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos if he or his staff knew about the messages, Emanuel said, "No, we never saw them. No involvement."

North Carolina Republican Patrick McHenry called the revelation "stunning" and told the Washington Times that Emanuel had let a "predator roam free" for "cold, calculated political advantage."

The Times also reports that a House ethics committee report says Democratic operatives pushed newspapers to write about the Foley e-mails in hopes of sparking a scandal before the midterm elections.

I wish I could say this surprises me, but it's exactly what I expect from such a corrupt bunch of people. How much coverage do you think this'll get outside of the blogosphere?
