Why Is Jim VandeHei Covering The Jack Abramoff Story?


by Steve

Can someone tell me why the Washington Post sees no problem with assigning Jim VandeHei to cover the Jack Abramoff beat and the White House spin emanating from Abramoff’s plea deal, when VandeHei’s wife used to work for Tom DeLay? On top of that, they paired him with Steno Sue Schmidt, who was Ken Starr’s leaking buddy during the Lewinsky days. So let’s just assume that the Post isn’t really serious about getting any Pulitzers on the Abramoff story, OK?
