Things just aren't getting
any better for
It seems that our favorite "Congressfloozie" has been caught lying. This time she's been caught lying to a Newspaper reporter which, in my humble opinion, is really stupid. Read the whole story here in The Daily Muck from Talking Points Memo. Here are some snippets:
Now, Wade told the government that neither Harris nor Goode knew that the contributions were illegal, i.e. that Wade reimbursed his employees and their spouses for the $2K they laid out to the campaigns.
What the heck had Wade, MZM's CEO, wanted from Harris in return for that money?
Harris has claimed, to me and other journalists, that she didn't have any idea. She insisted that she had assumed all those MZM-connected people -- who didn't live in Florida and whose $2,000 checks arrived in bundles -- just liked her stands on the issues and wanted to see her re-elected.
As Wade plea makes clear, Wade wanted something very specific from Harris: help with a defense appropriation. He even drafted a proposal and forwarded it on to her office. And she followed up on it, writing a letter to the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee asking for the money, estimated at $10M. (Wade's plea, The Ledger)
Sigh.....Katherine, I'm sooooo disappointed. I mean, I didn't actually think you were a rocket scientist or anything but I didn't think you were this.....challenged.
Oh yeah, that picture was all over the web after her famous appearance on Hannity and Colmes. It's the same picture that prompted the monicker "Prom Queen Gone to Seed".
Have fun folks...
