In Blog Daylight:
- Laura Rozen at War and Piece writes, “Looks like Wendy Buckham, the wife of former DeLay chief of staff-turned-lobbyist Ed Buckham, was getting her cut of donations going to a DeLay-linked ‘charity’ too.”
- At Tapscott’s Copy Desk, Mark Tapscott writes about a bill that uses Enron-style accounting to allow for more money to be spent. The bill, offered by Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM), would “authorize congressional appropriators to tap up to $500 million in revenues that may be collected by the federal government if drilling is allowed in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge.” So, the Congress can spend money now that it may or may not get in the future? The bill passed 51-49.
