OK, so it took a few days, but finally a major political news outlet in the US is following the scandal involving Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu and her close, intimate relationship with Citgo’s money.
The website Politico – one which *everyone* in Washington reads – has the story in its lead page. In fact, it goes beyond that. Reporter Byron Tau confirmed than Landrieu’s block of the bill was done at Citgo’s behest. There’s even an e-mail trail! (Thank you FOIA)
I don’t know what will come of this. I do know that I’m mad as hell about it.
