UPDATE: The Washington Post story on this is now up.
Eat that, you God damn lying conservative bloggers, FOX News and Rush Limbaugh.
From AP via Raw Story:
A one-page unsigned memo that became part of the debate preceding Congress' vote ordering a federal court review of the Terri Schiavo case originated in Florida Republican Sen. Mel Martinez' office, Martinez said Wednesday.I'm sorry, but Martinez only started investigating this TODAY? There were allegations that it was his staff weeks ago. And he investigates it only today because apparently today is when the press found out the truth.
The memo — first reported by ABC News on March 18 and by The Washington Post and The Associated Press two days later — said the fight over removing Schiavo's feeding tube "is a great political issue ... and a tough issue for Democrats."....
[Martinez] said Harkin had called him earlier Wednesday to say he believes the memo had been given to him by Martinez. The Florida senator said he then ordered an internal investigation in his office.
