Katherine Harris, Among Others, Investigated

We hear it all the time, "those crooks in Washington." Take the following excerpt about Katherine Harris, the woman who helped George Bush and his cronies steal the presidential election in 2000. Click on the link above to see the entire list of Congress members who are under investigation.

"Katherine Harris is under investigation by both the Justice Department and Defense Department for her relationship with Mitchell Wade, the former head of a defense company who pleaded guilty to a series of criminal bribery offenses in February 2006. Wade made $32,000 worth of illegal contributions to Harris' House campaign in 2004. In addition, he paid for at least two dinners with her at a Georgetown restaurant in 2004-2005 that totaled roughly $6,000. Later, Wade requested that Harris help secure $10 million in federal money for a company project of his in Sarasota, Fla. Federal officials have subpoenaed records from Harris' U.S. Senate campaign office and interviewed several of her former staffers. Harris was defeated in her Senate bid by Democrat Bill Nelson in the November 2006 elections."

The Score: Republicans 15 - Democrats 4
