Friends Forever: Kingston, Doolittle, Abramoff

Your Congressional representative should not be dealing with suspect people. But that's not the current case. Jack Kingston is using some of his political donations to pay off Congressman John Doolittle's (R-Calif.) legal expenses relating to the Jack Abramoff Scandals. As you probably recall, Abramoff is the Washington lobbyist who illegally used money, gifts and trips to purchase favors from federal lawmakers. Kingston received $17,000 in campaign contributions from Abramoff and his clients over the years, more than any other Georgia Congressperson! Why is Jack involved in Abramoff issues again? This is just not right. Jack should be in Washington working to improve South Georgia, not spending his time worrying about the legal bills of a California Congressman. One thing is for sure: you'll never catch me spending a dime on the legal bills of a wealthy, corrupt Congressman.
