Et tu, Democrats? Part Deux: When it comes to campaign contributions from dirty lobbyist, Republicans are the only dirty politicians…

Some of our thoughtful readers have skeptically asked, “So Abramoff is the only dirty lobbyist? And Republicans are the only dirty politicians?” The answer is: Yes!

Mike Stagg, a prolific contributor to this site, has carefully, but fairly, explained the magnitude and depth of the Abramoff scandal, meticulously showing its connection to the Republican Party. See, among others, Contributions + Contracts = Corruption? Nah! They're Republicans!!! Charlie B. Got Some $$$, too!. Mike’s articles show how the “dirty money” has found its way to Louisiana’s 7th Congressional District.

In defense of Abramoff, Fox News reporter Brian Wilson candidly admitted Republicans know “money means access” to political power. The K Street Project was conceived and implemented by Republican strategist Grover Norquist and House majority leader Tom DeLay. The K Street Project insures Republican “access” to money by selling “access” to Congress. Read: How the GOP disciplined K Street and made Bush supreme.
