Mehlman Caught With Hand In Cookie Jar-Abramoff relationship
A truly forgettable Shabbat dinner at the Abramoff's.

Jamison Foser, Managing Director of Media Matters for America today called on members of the media to challenge Mehlman on his inconsistencies.

Ken Mehlman has had more explanations for his close ties to Jack Abramoff than a child caught with his hand in the cookie jar, said Jamison Foser, Managing Director of Media Matters for America. Its time for the media to demand a true, consistent account from Mehlman. We shouldnt have to wait for another shoe to drop for the media to examine Mehlmans evolving explanations of his relationship to Abramoff.

As the scandal surrounding Abramoff has inched closer to the White House, Mehlman has gone from claiming Abramoff was someone we dont know a lot about in January, to knowing him in various capacities in April and conceding that he had known Abramoff since the mid-1990s in October.
