Steve has some thoughts about Abramoff and the Democrats in the Washington Post: "...Third, and most importantly, the controversy surrounding Republicans like DeLay is not just the fact that they took Abramoff's cash — it's that they did favors for Abramoff's clients as a result of the contributions. It's the apparent quid pro quo that makes it a scandal, not just a lobbyist directing some contributions around the Hill. The Post story documents some Dems getting checks, but points to literally no examples of the Dems doing anything for Abramoff as a result.

This isn't front page news. Hell, it's hardly news at all."
