Corporate Capito and Abramoff????

From Comcast news:

Friday's filings by prosecutors refer to a third member of Congress, Rep. Shelly Moore Capito, R-W.Va. Her name appears in e-mails that suggest she was trying to help Abramoff secure a GSA lease for land in Silver Spring for a religious school.

Capito claims to know nothing about the effort. "The action taken by her former chief of staff was done without her knowledge, approval or consent," said her spokesman, Joel Brubaker. "She was not aware of any contact with GSA of any type on this matter."

We all know she took campaign money from Delay and is nothing but a vote for corporate America over us real Americans but now it seems the corpution is coming to her front door. Will West Virginia's 2nd district and especially the Eastern Panhandle wake up and vote out Shelley Moore-Capito before it is too late???

It's amazing how the right wing media keeps trying to portray this as bipartisan corruption with Harry Reid. But Harry Reid voted against the interests of Jack Abramoff and did not take money from Abramoff. This is a Republican scandal through and through and I'm not surprised -- but still disappointed and saddened -- to see Ms. Capito named as part of it now.
