Open Thread

Well, well, well. Rep Jerry Lewis' other revolving door assistant, Letitia White, also had her bonus pay tied directly to the profitability of the earmarks obtained from Lewis' committee. If you recall, Jeff Shockey made almost $2 million in severance payments for the amount of money that his former clients were paying to Copeland Lowery for the benefit of having Shockey on Lewis' staff helping direct earmarks to them. Both assistants have been quite nicely rewarded for moving our tax dollars to their lobbying partners and their selected clients. Such a deal. So when is Lewis' goose cooked?

What's up?
