How Many Investigations Is That?
Depends how you count ‘em I suppose. 11? 12? 13? Somewhere in there.
The Treasury Department’s inspector general is looking into the agency’s decision to analyze presumptive Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry’s tax proposals. “We’re going to do a preliminary inquiry into what was produced,” Richard Delmar, counsel in the Office of Inspector General, said Tuesday.
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, had requested that Treasury conduct the cost analysis.
The department’s analysis of Kerry’s plan had ignited criticism from some Democrats, including Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., who wanted Treasury’s inspector general to determine whether any laws were broken.
“This `preliminary inquiry’ should be a full-blown investigation into whether or not administration officials violated laws by using federal property and taxpayer dollars to finance the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign, Lautenberg said Tuesday.
It seems to me the GOPers saw those 70% approval ratings back in early ‘02 and just got a sense of invincibility. What’s baffling is that they still haven’t woken up. What’s wrong with these guys?
