Mel Martinez And The Terri Schiavo Memo

Mel Martinez is taking over for Ken "The Talking Point" Mehlman at the GOP. Hmmm...Mel was the guy that passed out talking points on the floor on how to use the Terri Schiavo affair for political gain.

The legal counsel to Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) admitted yesterday that he was the author of a memo citing the political advantage to Republicans of intervening in the case of Terri Schiavo, the senator said in an interview last night.---Martinez, a freshman who was secretary of housing and urban development for most of President Bush's first term, said he had not read the one-page memo. He said he inadvertently passed it to Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), who had worked with him on the issue. After that, officials gave the memo to reporters for ABC News and The Washington Post.

Remember how the wingnuts were so intense on calling these talking points forgeries? And not surprising---Power line led the way.
