Weldongate: another October surprise?

Posted by: ST on October 16, 2006 at 7:17 pm

Allah’s got the lowdown on the FBI raids (4 homes and 2 offices) that occurred today as part of an investigation into possible influence peddling by Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA).

This is far more serious, I think, than Foleygate, even though the organization (the liberal-leaning CREW) that contacted the DOJ about Weldon did so two years ago.

Weldon’s in a already behind Sestak in the polls against Democratic his opponent Joe Sestak, and this obviously has the potential of swaying even more voters in the direction of Sestak. If he’s guilty, Weldon should do the time, but if he’s not, even the hint of the appearance of guilt can have serious consequences, as the three Duke lacrosse players accused of raping a stripper have found out.

Stay tuned.

    Now why would the DoJ “Suddenly” look into this if they had the information 2 years ago. I personally would love to get rid of all lobbists. There would be alot less corruption in DC if they weren’t around. But that is blaming the symptom for the disease. We shall see, let’s hope this is more smoke screen BS from the idealess crowd. – Lorica
