Bernard Madoff and the Democratic Party Scandal

The Center for Responsive Politics has just released a study of Bernie Madoff's political donations.

Since 1991, he and his wife have given $238,200 - 88% of it to Democrats, including Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D., NJ), Hillary Clinton (D, NY), and Ron Wyden (D., OR). It looks like longtime Democratic Party supporter Bernard Madoff will spend the rest of his life in prison. In a country with an unbiased, watchdog press corps, the Bernie Madoff scandal would have Democrat pols in Washington shaking in their suits, fearing hearings, as many Republicans did during the Jack Abramoff scandal.
