Considering 28 of the 31 Democrats have received Abramoff-affiliated funds themselves, it appears their hypocrisy has exceeded even their partisanship.
— Tracey Schmitt, Republican National Committee

Why are newspapers still letting this bilge get by without comment? To break it down once more, "Abramoff-affiliated funds" means:

• Money which did not come directly from confessed corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff. It came from some of his clients. Actual Abramoff funds were reserved for Republicans.

• Money from Indian tribes that were Abramoff clients. These tribes had contributed to Democrats before Abramoff got his hooks into them. After they became his clients, they did not increase these contributions, but did substantially increase contributions to Republicans.

Hearing these folks complain about hypocrisy is like listening to Sadaam Hussein complain about not getting a fair trial.
