Schumer Link to MD Dirty Tricks

It looks like Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee staffers -- working for DSCC chairman and preening Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) -- are the ones responsible for obtaining the credit report for potential Maryland senatorial contender Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R). They've "resigned," of course. As Deborah Orin reports, "Schumer is a leading critic of identity theft and breaches of sensitive personal data like credit reports."

Schumer is also a fan of "forthcomingness" -- judging from his reasons he's given for refusing to vote for Judge Roberts.

Two members of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee have resigned after admitting they obtained Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele's credit report.

Phil Singer, a spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), said the two staffers told committee officials in July what they had done. He said the committee began an internal investigation and determined it was an isolated incident.

"The DSCC immediately ensured that Mr. Steele's credit report was not used or disseminated to anyone," Mr. Singer said, "It also reported this incident to the U.S. attorney in Washington, D.C."

The DCCC said "buh bye" to these two and have said this sort of behaviour isn't tolerated.

NOW....Should we talk about those Republicans who broke the law in New Hampshire in the illegal phone jamming scam. Their legal bills are being paid by the RNC.

For a party who claims to have "morals", shouldn't the RNC denounce their actions instead of rewarding them?

This shouldn't be a matter of win or should be about doing the right thing. Well...that's according to the Bible that I recall...I don't know what Bible many members of the Republican party are using. Apparently the section of "thou shalt not lie" wasn't included.
