UPDATES ON: Insane Howard Dean Sunday Morning on CNN’s Late Edition With Wolf Blitzer

US Newswire

“There are no Democrats who took money from Jack Abramoff, not one, not one single Democrat. Every person named in this scandal is a Republican. Every person under investigation is a Republican. Every person indicted is a Republican. This is a Republican finance scandal. There is no evidence that Jack Abramoff ever gave any Democrat any money and we’ve looked through all of the F.E.C. reports to make sure that’s true…I know the Republican National Committee would like to get the Democrats involved in this. They’re scared. They should be scared. They haven’t told the truth. They have misled the American people, and now it appears they’re stealing from Indian tribes. The Democrats are not involved in this.”

UPDATE………January 11,2006
The Washington Times
Dean denies party ties to Abramoff
By Donald Lambro

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean says that Democrats took no money from Jack Abramoff in the lobbying scandal, but a public-interest group official said yesterday that they did accept contributions from the lobbyist’s clients, who were trying to buy influence.
Mr. Dean has stepped up attacks on Republicans, charging, “Every person named in this scandal is a Republican.”
“Every person under investigation is a Republican. Every person indicted is a Republican. This is a Republican finance scandal,” Mr. Dean said Sunday on CNN’s “Late Edition.”
But Republican officials and a major public-integrity group counter his assertion with a growing list of Democrats who have received contributions from American Indian tribes represented by Abramoff, who has pleaded guilty to tax evasion and fraud in connection with his lobbying activities.
“What our list shows is that both Republicans and Democrats received contributions from Indian tribes that were represented at one time by Jack Abramoff,” said Lawrence Noble, executive director and general counsel for the Center for Responsive Politics.
“So the answer to Dean depends on how you define scandal,” Mr. Noble said. “I would say, broadly defined as a question of the tribes’ buying influence in Washington, it includes Democrats.”
The political news wire the Hotline has compiled a list of nearly three dozen Democrats who have received campaign contributions from Abramoff-related tribes. More than a dozen of them to date have refused to give back the money, saying that the contributions were legal.
Leading the list of Democrats is Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, who has received $61,000 in campaign contributions from various donors with links to Abramoff. His office has said he will not return any of the funds because they “were part of lawful fundraising.”
Other Democrats listed who have refused to return Abramoff-linked money include Sens. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, Patty Murray of Washington and Ron Wyden of Oregon.
Some of the Democratic senators who have returned a portion of the money from Abramoff clients or donated it to charity include Max Baucus of Montana, Maria Cantwell of Washington, and Kent Conrad and Byron L. Dorgan of North Dakota.
A top aide to Mr. Dean defended the assertion that “as far as we know,” no Democrats were directly or indirectly part of the influence-buying scandal that is under a Justice Department investigation.
“Indian tribes are not criminals. Jack Abramoff is a criminal who did not give any money to Democrats,” said Karen Finney, the DNC’s spokeswoman.
But Mr. Noble said Abramoff may have had a hand in who received money from the tribes he represented.
“We assume that Abramoff gave the tribes a list of names of members [of Congress] who should receive contributions,” Mr. Noble said.

And take a gander at these :
An NRSC Report Shows That Nearly 90 Percent Of Senate “Democrats Have Taken Abramoff-Related Money.” “The NRSC has begun circulating among fellow Republicans new reports showing that all but five of the chamber’s 44 Democrats have taken Abramoff-related money. In addition, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have taken more than $1.2 million, according to records provided to The Washington Times.” (Charles Hurt, “Dorgan Returns Abramoff Money,” The Washington Times, December 14, 2005)
“If The Democrats Are Alleging That Republicans Are Guilty Of Any Wrongdoing, They’re Sitting In The Same Boat.” “Democrats have run two television advertisements in Montana, castigating Burns for his activities on behalf of Abramoff, but as the lobbyist’s taint spreads, its political impact may dissipate, said Brian Nick, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. ‘If the Democrats are alleging that Republicans are guilty of any wrongdoing, they’re sitting in the same boat,’ he said. ‘It just becomes a nonstarter.’” (Jonathan Weisman and Derek Willis “Democrat On Panel Probing Abramoff To Return Tribal Donations,” The Washington Post, December 14, 2005)

RightToCarry says:

Dean is mentaly ill. That’s the only explanation.
WOW! a Who’s Who of the radical left. And they claim that they aren’t capitalist. Nor that they are common criminals.

Wild Thing says:

Hahaha RightToCarry they sure are common and criminals too. Lead by a nutcase the screamer Dean.
Thanks for commenting.

Rhod says:

Dean is clearly mad; he also proves that its possible to be an MD while being dumber than a railroad spike. The wonder is that he could practice medicine at all while being an utter imbecile on matters of politics, religion, culture and demographics.
Around here, in Connecticut, his type is fairly common. Dean’s a Manhattan penthouse rat. He’s a particularly fine example of the degenerate end of hereditary or financial aristocracies, where money, indulgence and unearned privlege left them densely stupid, bigoted, and prone to all kinds of weird impulses, hatreds and habits.
In another age, say the 1930’s, Dean would be marching around in a black shirt, preaching eugenics, drooling on his tie and pinching the waitress. No man this uncontrolled and dimwitted can be stable. For that reason alone, he belongs in the DNC.

Wild Thing says:

Hahahaha so true! Thank you for your comments and I love them. Soooooo true!

TomR says:

Lets hope the Dems don’t wise up and sack Dean. Every time he makes a public appearance, he does more to hurt the Left, than a hundred Reublican ads.

delftsman3 says:

I think Dean entered politics so that he wouldn’t go broke paying off malpractice suits…
I tried to trackback, but it didn’t take. I hope you don’t mind I (stole) borrowed the gist of this post for one of my own..
With direction here to enjoy your great art work, of course!

Wild Thing says:

Tom, I agree, Dean is better for us then if they didn’t have Dean. I know we sure don’t hear the other Dems cheering him on.
Good point!! Thank you

Wild Thing says:

HI delftsman, you can always have any graphics I make or find. It is great to know someone likes them.
My Blog is set up so I get to OK posts and trackbacks. I love it that way, except that sometimes I am not online at the moment so my ok’ing things has to wait a little bit. I just now gave the OK. Thank you sooooo much!
Always know you can always have any graphics.

maximumsteve says:

where did those numbers come from?

Wild Thing says:

maximumsteve, I got the numbers from various articles and write ups about this topic.

chrys says:

Interesting to know that Reid is not a Democrat! – Geez Howard! $68,000 worth of Republican!

Wild Thing says:

Hi Chrys thanks for the comment. I guess Reid did this in his sleep or something.
