...and the scandals continue.
First up is "Nexus of Politics & Terror-gate" where Thomas Nelson, an attorney representing a high-profile Saudi client, is forced to fly back and forth from the Middle East due to suspicion (OK, documented proof) that all his communications are being monitored by the Bush administration.
Next, we have "War Profiteering-gate" on the heels of a report from the Inspector General in charge of overseeing Iraq reconstruction that details the scores of projects left unfinished and millions of dollars wasted. Hey, it's not like we need that money here anyway, right?
And finally, "I Want To See Your Diploma-gate" after Justice Scalia offers Lesley Stahl some tortured logic while trying to explain that torture doesn't qualify as "cruel and unusual punishment" because, get this, torture is not "punishment." Yea, that's who McCain wants to model his SCOTUS nominee after.
