Howard Dean spoke way too soon about the Democrats being lily white and pure on accepting money from the Jack Abramoff. We’re hearing that that the Democratic campaign committees in both the House and the Senate are running full audits to find out just have much they have accepted.
Senator Harry Reid apparently reached out to Dean and told him to keep his mouth shut. Dean, according to DNC sources, believes the Abramoff story has traction, based on what the party is seeing out in the states. We shall see.
The upshot, though, is that Democrats can only attack Jack Abramoff for so long before a number of prominent Democratic activists/lobbyists/fundraisers come under close scrutiny.
