Abramoff was getting 10 to 20 times as much from Indian tribes as they had paid other lobbyists. And he had made substantial campaign contributions to both major parties. - Washington Post ombudsman, 1/15/06This is flat out wrong, and the Post knows it. Abramoff gave ZERO to Democrats, all his donations were to Republicans.
Maybe it's time the Washington Post hired an ombudsman to keep an eye on their increasingly sloppy and weak-kneed ombudsman. This is the woman who thinks the answer to Bob Woodward refusing to tell his editor about his involvement in the Valerie Plame affair is - what? - that Woodward get an editor.

And for the record, I'm going to list Jack Abramoff's donations - find me a single Democrat, oh Washington Post ombudsman - just one. And by the way, let's not forget the Washington Post's crack editorial team that let this whopper of a mistake slip through. But hey, the Washington Post has become the party newspaper for Bush ever since it helped propel the nation into a war based on a lie, so why quit now.
