Democrat Hypocrisy At Its Best

Harry Reid issued a note demonizing 33 Republicans for receiving money from Jack Abramoff entitled "Republican Abuse of Power." However he recently had to apologize for the message after some unwanted flack from the letter. And remember how Democrats blamed Tom Delay as the fall guy for the whole issue? Well, its' time to turn the tables a bit. This is from Capital Eye, showing who took how much.

Tom Delay (R-TX) - $28,000

Some Democrats:
Dick Durbin (D-IL) - $8,000
Hillary Clinton (D-NY) - $1,000
Diane Fienstien (D-CA) - $1,000
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) - $3,000

But that's nothing right? Chump change compared to Delay. Well, let's look at a few more Democrats.

Tom Daschle (D-SD) - $26,500
Patty Murray (D-WA) - $40,980
Harry Reid (D-NV) - $30,500
Charles Rangel (D-NY) - $31,000

Some of the lead people chastising Tom Delay took almost as much, if not more than he did. Rangel and possibly more Democrats have not yet returned it.
