The Lefties are ASSassins

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reportedly raided the home of Republican congressmember John Doolittle (R-CA), according to The Hill.

"The FBI searched the Virginia home of [Doolittle] last Friday," write Mike Soraghan and Susan Crabtree, "in its investigation into the ties of the congressman and his wife, Julie, to disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff, according to law enforcement and other Congressional and K Street sources."

Raw Story reported in November 2005 that the Justice Department, investigating possible influence-peddling by Abramoff, had scrutinized his dealings with Doolittle and other lawmakers.

Presently, Doolittle "has been under fire," continue Soraghan and Crabtree, "for paying his wife's company, Sierra Dominion, a 15 percent commission on all contributions that the company raised for Doolittle's campaign committee and leadership PAC." Two of Abramoff's businesses made up the only other three clients of Doolittle's wife.

Excerpts from the Hill article, available in full at this link, follow...

Doolittle came within three percentage points of losing his election in November after facing months of scrutiny over his relationship with Abramoff, who is in jail for an array of fraud, bribery and money-laundering charges.


Doolittle also received contributions from indicted defense contractor Brent Wilkes and his associates, and investigators are probing whether those contributions are linked to any official action Doolittle took to help Wilkes’s company obtain millions of dollars in government earmarks.

Wilkes recently was indicted in connection with his investigation stemming from former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham’s (R-Calif.) bribery conviction and jailing.

Just more left wing quackery. Mr. Doolittle has already answered his critics baseless charges but like Tom Delay the left will not let go. They are like a pitbull, they are relentless and dangerous.

You can be loyal to the Republican Party or you can be loyal to conservative principles (including opposition to corruption). You cannot be loyal to both. It appears you have cast your lot.

Dolittle dodged a bullet in the 2006 election. My prediction: He won't be so lucky in '08 (if he should last so long).

Fair or not, the voters expect Republicans to live up to a higher moral standard than they do Democrats. Because of that, voters chose Bush over clinton's sidekick in 2000 and in 2006 punished the spoiled GOP-led Congress. The bad odor from Dolittle's foolish hiring of his wife as a paid fundraiser -- thus creating a channel for campaign donations to turn into income for his household -- certainly spilled over into other GOP races in the Sacramento region, Pombo's for example.

The time for Placer county Republicans to locate a good socially conservative, tax cutting, and free market candidate to replace Rep. Dolittle is long overdue.

Michael i,

The problem is not Julie Doolittle's position as a fundraiser for her husband. While that situation is stinky, I'm not sure it is illegal. Julie Doolittle is in trouble because of her "job" with Ed Buckham at the Korea-US Exchange. I suspect that she did little to no work and her "salary" was really a bribe. Rep. Doolittle thought he could get away with it because of the degree of separation of the bribe -- it was paid to his wife Julie and not John directly and because he intended to deflect questions about it by saying his wife "earned" it.
