Two emails

I received two interesting emails within a few minutes of each other that I thought I'd pass along.

The first pointed to this post at Think Progress by Amanda describing how desperate DeLay & Co. must have been to fill the room that they let in a protester for 10% of the minimum donation.

The second recommended a Modesto Bee article about California Rep. Richard Pombo's donations from and connections to disgraced Jack Abramoff. Pombo, it seems, supped a few times at Signatures, Abramoff's swanky restaurant. He claims he ate there only "because some constituents asked about it."

"That's not the kind of place I would normally hang out at," Pombo said.

So who were those constituents? And do you take us to be so gullible?
