Check out this WaPo Ombudsman take on Democrats and Abramoff repeating GOP spin that this is a bipartisan affair and again not differentiating Indian tribes and Abramoff. And repeat this is from the Wapo Ombudsman.
I think everyone should email this ombudsman and Sens.Reid and Dorgan should strongly demand a retraction or an apology. Their reputation is being smeared by no less than the WaPo ombudsman.
The second complaint is from Republicans, who say The Post purposely hasn't nailed any Democrats. Several stories, including one on June 3 by Jeffrey H. Birnbaum, a Post business reporter, have mentioned that a number of Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) and Sen. Byron Dorgan (N.D.), have gotten Abramoff campaign money.
So far, Schmidt and Grimaldi say their reporting on the investigations hasn't put Democrats in the first tier of people being investigated.
But stay tuned. This story is nowhere near over.
