Disclosure: I worked for the Lamont campaign doing web design and production and some writing for the official blog (from 9/5/06 to 11/07/06).

More Debateness

Joe Lieberman demanded that the HUD Office of Inspector General investigate HUD Sec. Jackson’s public statements that those who criticize Bush will not get HUD contracts (which is illegal).


Jackson said he did not want that money to be used to “campaign against Bush”. Pay for play at HUD. Jackson doesn't even bother to attempt to be discreet about it!

What happened to the investigation - Karl Rove told Joe to drop it? Not even a tiny slap on the wrist, for treating HUD like a GOP campaign money slush fund?

Jackson CANNOT be allowed to get away with this scot free. He either fraudulently awarded HUD contracts, AND/or he threatened every potential contractor - suck up to Bush or I'll make sure you don't get HUD contracts. Gross fiscal mismanagement of tax dollars. Waste. Corruption. Absue of office.

HUD OIG's web site states that government employees have a LEGAL obligation to report fraud and mismanagement. Does that obligate Joe to make sure there is an investigation?
"Morning Edition" on NPR ran some snippets from the debate this morning. If these sound bites were representative, Lamont was quit effective (I did not see or hear the debate).
Thanks for the shout out....

And damn good blogging!
