Another Rethug Congressman in the Crosshairs

From our "never rains but it pours" department, US Rep Curt Weldon (R-Corrupt) is the subject of an FBI probe of possible influence peddling, using his own daughter.

So what does Faux News lead with? Weldon's concern about the "timing" of the FBI raid, this close to the election.

As if the Democrats could control it. As if the Justice Department isn't headed by one Alberto "Torquemada" Gonzales, consigliere to the BFEE, who is perfectly capable of stalling any FBI investigation -- and especially an FBI raid -- until after the election.

So who did order the raid, and why was it this close to the election? Is Weldon being thrown overboard by the Rethugs? Or is it that the tide has finally shifted to the point that they can do nothing to stem it?

Jesus, if the Democrats aren't careful, even they won't be able to fuck this one up and lose again.
