I'm getting confused by all the Republican scandals
When I read this "Are there any Republican political types who aren't crooks?" I thought Digby was talking about Claude Allen
you know that Claude Allen. In fact (s)he was talking about Kenneth Tomlinson.
This does underline the pertinence of the question.
And just below, I bragged to Italians that in America political women are not just window dressing but are involved in the serious business of laundering money (I live in Italy). My example was Barbara Bonfiglio, whose Cognome just shouts Italia --- he uh wait
(smacks hand against forehead) oh yeah I forgot about Italia Federici.
