The other juicy scandal in the US concerns a Congresswoman, Jane Harmon (D-Dumbass). She was caught in a legal FBI wiretap making a deal to try and get charges against two Israeli spys dismissed in exchange for lobbyist support for her political ambitions. But she wasn't charged. Instead, the Alberto Gonzales blackmailed her to support warantless wiretapping. Nice.
Anyway, Glenn Greenwald (who is usually too over the top for my taste) evicerates Harmon with her own words. He's not very nice, but it is certainly satisfying.
