The Abramoff Volcano is Ready to Erupt

And its lava is going to overwhelm a lot of Republicans in Congress. The New York Times has the story. Tom DeLay is a prime target of the Justice Department's investigation. Money quote in the NYT article:

"I think this has the potential to be the biggest scandal in Congress in over a century," said Thomas E. Mann, a Congressional specialist at the Brookings Institution. "I've been around Washington for 35 years, watching Congress, and I've never seen anything approaching Abramoff for cynicism and chutzpah in proposing quid pro quos to members of Congress."

It's time to clean out the Republican crooks, liars, thugs, and con artists. This is all a prelude to the Big Clean Out that's going to take place on Tuesday, 7 November 2006, when the American people elect a Democratic Congress.
