    Lawmaker Is Said to Have Agreed to Aid Lobbyists

    Congresswoman Jane Harmon has been caught by NSA offering to aid lobbyists who were under investigation. Jane Harmon is also upset that she was tapped without warrants.

    Say what?? Warrantless wiretaps??

    She had no problem pushing for warrantless wiretaps for the rest of us. Why does she have a problem with it now? - Oh, that's right. The wiretaps were on HER.

    Tell ya' what, Jane - If you didn't do anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.

    The only people who should be under constant surveillance are politicians.

    Sure. By CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and every other news and media outlet imaginable.

    I guess grandma Pelosi may not get that mighty morphin money from this source.

    She will get it somewhere else. This is just a prime example of how big government and big business own each other.
    Thank you

    I saw footage of her denying this. Yeah right, lady. You're guilty, and you know it.

    That's what I like about you. You won't defend her just because she is a Democrat. Kudos to you.

    Re: Lawmaker Is Said to Have Agreed to Aid Lobbyists

    This is one hell of an ironic case. On one hand we have a politician agreeing on tape to aid some lobbyists, something that we all know that every single politician does and especially in the US. And on the other hand the only way we would have this admitting on tape is because of illegal wiretaps agreed by the very same person it effected ... talk about irony on so many levels.
