Now that's a story that makes my heart go pitty-pat! I do hope everyone's had a chance to see AP's hatchet job today (which I mean in the nicest sense of the term): Donors Underwrite DeLay's Deluxe Lifestyle. I do believe the floodgates they may be opening.

Handy WashPo graphic I linked to here on where Abramoff's money came from and went to, if you've not seen it.

Gary: As I understand it, the "official donations" are the tip of the iceberg. The real story lies in the perks -- free tickets, free meals -- a lot of money sloshing around that WASN'T officially donated.

I wish the same thing, but it looks like she's going to get wiggle out of it.

I hope that any politicians and government employees who have sold out their positions, their constituents, and their country get exactly what they deserve.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A campaign fundraising group for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has agreed to a $35,000 fine for underreporting hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on a Hollywood fundraiser in 2000.

The organization, New York Senate 2000, agreed to a federal finding that it failed to report $721,895 spent on the fundraiser to boost the former first lady's campaign for the Senate, according to paperwork provided by Peter F. Paul, who helped finance the star-studded gala that drew Cher, Diana Ross, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
