Dems Didn’t Take a Dime From Abramoff, Dean Says
Posted on Jan 9, 2006
DailyKos: Not a single Dem took Abramoff money. Democrats have to set the record straight one misinformed person at a time. Dean took point on Wolf Blitzer:
BLITZER: Should Democrats who took money from Jack Abramoff, who has now pleaded guilty to bribery charges, among other charges, a Republican lobbyist in Washington, should the Democrat who took money from him give that money to charity or give it back?
DEAN: 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. | more
