But Conrad Burns is a bigger asshole. I hope Montanans don't let this slimy bastard off the hook. He is a prime example of Rethug corruption.
"No one mentioned the $150,000 he accepted from lobbyist Jack Abramoff and later returned. No one brought up the $3 million federal grant secured by a wealthy Indian tribe -- and Abramoff client -- after Burns pressured the Interior Department. No one quoted Abramoff telling Vanity Fair that he and his clients had received 'every appropriation we wanted' from a subcommittee chaired by Burns.
Only one question during Friday's debate even mentioned Abramoff, whose web of illegal lobbying has spawned the largest congressional scandal in years. And Burns pugnaciously dismissed it, saying, 'If you want to know something about the Abramoff deal, you got to ask the Democrats.'"
