Really Mr. Dean?

In my Federalist Patriot email I saw this interesting quote from Howard Dean in regard to the Jack Abramoff scandal.

“There are no Democrats who took money from Jack Abramoff, not one, not one single Democrat. Every person named in this scandal is a Republican. Every person under investigation is a Republican. Every person indicted is a Republican. This is a Republican finance scandal. There is no evidence that Jack Abramoff ever gave any Democrat any money. And we’ve looked through all of those FEC reports to make sure that’s true.” —DNC Chairman Howard Dean

The Federalist Patriot goes on to ask about a few people who have received some of the money. I wrote a post about this so if Howie wants to do a little research on the subject he can go here and get a list of the 40 Democrats who have taken Abramoff money.

Or maybe it really is as the Patriot puts it:

True to form, many Democrat beneficiaries, like Minority Leader Harry Reid, have no intention of returning the money they received from Abramoff because they maintain that the contributions were perfectly legal. Apparently, the only dirty money is that which Abramoff gave to Republicans.
