Six More Abramoff White House visits uncovered
BREAKING NEWS from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Six more visits by Abramoff to the White House have been "unexpectedly discovered." CREW posted the letter from the Secret Service on their web site.

Talking Points Memo reminded us today of the close relationship between Abramoff and Mehlman (although Ken is in denial.)

3. Guess the investigation was uncovering it on its own.
They just wanted to save more embarrassment (like the M$M and most of America care)
