What is this Article Trying to say about Hastert Staffer Scott Palmer?
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 08:59 PM by Cheney Killed Bambi
Hmmmmmmmm


The media whirlwind ruffling House Speaker Dennis Hastert last week has died down a notch or two, but as an investigation into the congressional page scandal moves forward, the focus has shifted to what Hastert's staffers knew and when they knew it.

Or, more specifically, what did Hastert's Chief of Staff Scott Palmer know?

. . .

After 40 years of friendship, Richardson and his wife still dine with Palmer when he's home in Aurora on the weekends from Washington.

"It's like fine dining you'd find at the best restaurants in Chicago," Richardson said. "Scott probably owns more cooking books than my wife."

In fact, Palmer's culinary prowess landed him in a Beacon News article from 1986 in which he divulged his recipes for Orange Rolls and Opera Torte.

. . .

Though he still "cooks up a storm" for a few weeks in the summer at the family cottage in Maine, these days, he's immersed in the Washington insider's game. He has never been married.

2. The "It's all the fault of gays" outfest has begun....
No surprise there. If nothing else, maybe this will teach gays and lesbians who for whatever masochistic reasons declare themselves Repugs that when you lie down with Republicans, you wake up with knives in your back.

3. Well if he's a great cook and lives with Denny,
it might explain Denny's look. I know what being married to a good cook has done for my waistline.

5. Are you guys telling me none of you saw Lawrence O'Donnell's article
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 09:39 PM by Janice325
is yesterday's Huffington Post???http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lawrence-odonnell/who-is-...
Part of it states:
"If Fordham did warn Palmer about Foley a long time ago, what are the odds that Palmer did not tell Hastert? As close to zero as you can get. Many chiefs of staff are close, very close, to their bosses on Capitol Hill. But none are closer than Scott Palmer is to Denny Hastert. They don't just work together all day, they live together."

PS I'm not trying to be a smartie pants, I'm just surprised I might have read something before other DU'ers. :-)
