http://www.capitolhilljournal.com/art000000058.htmlWhile Democrats and the “progressive” left were quick in trying
to brand the Abramoff scandal as a “Republican scandal,” the
facts indicate that this declaration is just another attempt by
political opportunists at misdirection. In fact, Democrats do a
great job at feeding off the special interest trough.
According to Internal Revenue Service records, and
substantiated by the Campaign Finance Analysis Project, forty
of the forty-five members of the Democrat Senate Caucus took
money from Jack Abramoff, his associates, and their Indian tribe
clients. These recipients include: Charles Schumer ($29,550),
Harry Reid ($68,941), Patty Murray ($78,991), Mary Landrieu
($28,000), John Kerry ($98,550), Ted Kennedy ($3,300), Tom
Harkin ($45,750), Dick Durbin ($14,000), Barbara Boxer
($20,250), Hillary Clinton ($12,950) and Byron Dorgan
When tallied, Senate Democrats and their national committees
accepted $3.1 million from Abramoff, his associates and clients,
compared with $4.3 million in contributions to Republicans. So,
the statement that this is exclusively a “Republican scandal” is
simply not true.
http://www.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2006/1/6/100900.shtmlMost Senate Dems Took Abramoff Cash.
• Senator John Kerry (D-MA), who received at least $98,550 in Abramoff-linked cash.
you haven't showed anything that proves Kerry took money from Abramoff,
so unless Kerry is lieing to the IRS, then it's true!
http://www.judicialwatch.org/kerry-contributions.shtmlSen. John Kerry accepted laundered contributions for his 1996 re-election campaign from the Communist Chinese government and that, in exchange, he may have arranged meetings between Chinese aerospace executives and U.S. government officials.
Obtained from the FBI through Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act requests, the documents are related to the FBI’s “Chinagate” investigation into the Clinton campaign’s acceptance of contributions from Communist Chinese government sources.
“These disturbing FBI documents raise further questions about Sen. Kerry’s involvement in what looks like a quid pro quo (cash for meetings) with the Communist Chinese,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
