Shameful

John Doolittle

Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA) is one of four congressmen whom the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal have both named as being investigated for their ties to Jack Abramoff.

Doolittle has seats on two powerful committees for granting favors: the Committee on House Administration as well as the Appropriations Committee. He also holds the sixth highest ranking elected position in the House Leadership, the Secretary of the House Republican Conference.

Doolittle, a Mormon and "ardent opponent of casino gambling," was "particularly close to Abramoff," according to former Abramoff associates. Doolittle himself has admitted this.


Analysis-The previous blogger had a post about Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA) and I have to agree. A commenter speculated Aaron stopped blogging because Doolittle or one of his minions squashed the blog and Aaron capitulated. I hope that's not the case, regardless I will not make excuses for Doolittle or any politician that appears to be corrupted by power. I am a religious independent and I think for myself. If you can change my mind I will be a big enough man to admit I was wrong but don't hold your breath on that.

You are right--I am surprised already, and equally encouraged. I like the idea of calling a spade a spade regardless of its party affiliation!

I agree. It is refereshing to see honesty and integrity come before party politics.

Hmmm....this will be interesting indeed. Of course, obviously your no fan of doolittle. Unlike RC.
You've said you're a relgious independant. Interesting.

While I don't believe the RC hype about his blogging, especially after seeing him comment ON a blog using CRAsgt......it's odd that he's suddenly ( three times a charm? within the same week? ) disappeared, yet again...and poof!....you're here. Using his RC namesake, no less.

Quaint. Call me zenophobic if you like, but when curve balls come from left field, I usually take a pause to find out WHY.

It'll be interesting to see, but I wonder where you truely are from and why you chose THIS name as yours. Given how the LAST one ran, will you turn out to be an ' insider with a vendetta 'an agenda, or the same ol song and dance, just a different dress on?

Time will tell...........

Whatever. You have a take and you're sticking to it (for now).

Doolittle long ago stopped serving the public good. It's time for a change.
