The Daily Kos reminds us:
For the record, there are no high profile investigations of any Democrats
right now. Too bad the same can't be said about Republicans. In no particular
* The Senate's top cop investigated Republican hacking of Democratic
accounts and theft of thousands of documents. After finding probable cause for
wrongdoing, the Senate Judiciary Committee recommended the Justice Department
undertake its own criminal probe.
* The House and Senate Intelligence Committees are both investigating
intelligence lapses heading up to the Iraq War.
* The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating Bush's pre-war lies
about Iraq's WMDs and ties to al Qaida.
* Rove, Cheney's entire political team and others are being investigated by
a Justice Department special prosecutor for leaking the name of a covert CIA
agent (Plame) to discredit her husband -- a critic of the administration's
trumped up charges that Iraq was seeking nuclear material in Niger.
* Can anyone forget the 9-11 commission?
* HHS Inspector General Dara Corrigan is investigating administration lies
about the true cost of the Medicare bill. Remember, not only did the Bush
Administration undercount the costs (from $395 billion to $521 billion), but then
threatened an auditor with his job if he revealed the true numbers.
* The General Accounting Office is investigating the fake "news reports" the
White House created to promote the Medicare law's new prescription drug
* And being the gift that keeps on giving, the House Standards of Official
Conduct Committee and the Justice Department are both (and seperately)
investigating bribery allegations as the administration and its congressional allies
twisted arms to get the necessary votes in the House to pass the Medicare bill.
* Tom DeLay is under criminal investigation on whether his Texas political
action committee (Texans for a Republican Majority) improperly financed the
GOP's takeover of the Texas legislature. DeLay has already signaled he may be
forced to step down from his leadership post (even if just temporarily) if
* Connecticut Governor John Rowland is being investigated by federal
prosecutors for a shockingly brazen level of corruption. Even the state's GOP
establishment has abandoned the governor, and impeachment proceedings are likely
unless he resigns his post.
