Word is, Bilbray (R), CA-50, investigated by Grand Jury for fraud

allegedly for lying about his place of residence on the registration card. His mother lives in CA-50, but he never did. Needs confirmation. His campaign office is still closed (it's 8AM PST). Number: (858) 457-5500.

1. So, Hastert rushed to swear in Bilbray,
told the judge in the CA-50 court case that the state had no jurisdiction to investigate any aspect of the June election, and didn't require the U.S. House itself to do even minimal checking to make sure that Bilbray was truly a qualified candidate?

5. Yes. The more repub scandals uncovered
the less time and resources they have to defuse each of them. Here's one more, to spread 'em even thinner! :toast:

8. I'm sure Hastert will say
"I was unaware of his residency until the other day ..."
