What Else Is Senator Allen Hiding? (DNC Release)
Washington, DC - Tonight, Democratic Challenger Jim Webb will debate embattled
Republican incumbent Senator George Allen. The debate comes as Allen is
engulfed in yet another scandal. According to the Associated Press, for the
last five years, Allen has failed to tell Congress about stock options he got
for his work as a director of a high-tech company. Allen even asked the Army
to help another business that gave him similar options.

This latest scandal again raises questions about whether or not Senator Allen
will put what's best for Virginia ahead of what's in his own personal
interests, said Democratic National Committee Press Secretary Stacie Paxton.
Tonight he owes the people of Virginia clear answers about why he failed to
adhere to Senate rules by not disclosing this compensation. What else is
Senator Allen hiding? Virginians are ready for a new direction that includes
honest and ethical lawmaking.

1. They'll still elect Allen.
Unless he grows horns and a tail live on television, VA will still elect him.

3. The polls say it's a dead heat....
he's in real trouble, it's far from a sure thing, and the Democratic Party is pouring a ton of money into Webb's campaign, so evidently they think it's in play too.
