Democratic senator caught fudging truth
It was only last week that the Huffington Post began asking elected officials named in Jack Abramoff’s new book as recipients of his clients’ cash about the charges.
The denials came fast and furious.
Some, like Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., not only denied taking any money from Abramoff, they denied ever meeting with him, ever laying eyes on him and ever being in the same room with him. And they called Abramoff a liar for making the charges.
