But What About Schumer?

The Washington Post reports that one of the Schumer aides from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee who was accused last September of illegally obtaining the credit card report of Maryland Lieutenant Governor (and Republican US Senate candidate) Michael Steele (discussed on this blog here) is going to face charges.

What's funny about the Post article is the paucity of reference to Schumer himself -- the aide's employer. Quite a difference between this and the treatment of the Claude Allen affair, where he was frequently identified as a "former Bush aide" -- especially considering that Allen's wrongdoing took place outside the scope of his employment, whereas for the Schumer aide, the situation is exactly the opposite.
