2. Can the Democrats get any type of investigation? Do they have any

4. Making a stink about it is the first step...
I'm glad they took it. They need to keep fussing about it. That's where the Repubs excel, going on and on about something until they get an investigation....even when they were the minority party. That's what we need to do....keep bringing it up and demanding investigation.

10. Yep, keep bringing it up, and there's a pile bhind the stink, IMHO.
Anyone who'ds read "Republican Noise Machine" by David Brock is already familiar with this in a different form.

It won't take much pushing back of the furniture to find more of this stuff, I'm fairly certain.

5. We need to stay vocal with the media
Demand to know who has received gifts from the administration. It may give the story longer legs.
