66. Will do. Also, more on the Rep. Lewis - Wilkes (MZM) scandal

Both Serberus and MZM were giving GOP House Appropriations Chairman Jerry Lewis large amounts of money for distribution to other GOP Congressmen through Lewis' PAC. Lewis was being investigated by the US Attorney for the Southern District of CA, Debra Wong Yang, who resigned on Nov. 10 to go to work for the powerhouse LA law firm that's defending Lewis.

Laura Rozen speculates that Yang, upon learning of her impending firing last year, accepted a rather comfortable exit package rather than be fired as was here her colleague, USA Caroline Lam. See, http://www.tpmmuckraker.com/archives/cats/jerry_lewis /

This is incredibly sordid.
