Epilogue 2, the John Sweeney story

Via TPMMuckraker
After narrowly winning reelection in his very conservative district, Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA) says he's reformed, but it sure doesn't look like he's really got religion.

He's firing his wife as his campaign fundraiser, he announced yesterday -- no longer will she, and by extension Doolittle himself, get a 15% cut of every contribution to his campaign.

What's that got to do with Sweeney, Lame-o? Well, Sweeney and his wife had the same pocket-lining, er, fundraising arrangement.

Alas, what with Sweeney getting voted out of office, he will not have the same chance to "get religion."
