Harry Reid: "Don't lump me in with Jack Abramoff."

ooooooo... fox news gets a dose of the flip side... who woulda thunk it...?
U.S. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid called the Republican-led Congress "the most corrupt in history" on Sunday, and distanced himself from lobbyist Jack Abramoff, at the center of an escalating probe.

The Justice Department is investigating whether Jack Abramoff directed illegal payoffs to lawmakers, including Rep. Tom DeLay of Texas, who was forced to step down as House Republican leader in September after indicted in his home state of Texas on unrelated charges.

"Don't lump me in with Jack Abramoff. This is a Republican scandal," Reid told Fox News Sunday, saying he never received any money from Abramoff.

don't give an inch, harry... as a matter of fact, now that news will be slowing down in advance of the holidays, the media are going to be looking for juicy comments... keep 'em coming...
