Doolittle's Home Raided by the FBI

Congressman John Doolittle's home in Virginia was raided last Friday. Breaking from the Sacramento Bee:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the Virginia home of Rep. John Doolittle and his wife Julie on Friday, executing a search warrant for materials related to Julie Doolittle's company, Sierra Dominion Financial Services.

The raid apparently is in connection with the ongoing federal investigation of the political corruption scandal stirred by Jack Abramoff, a one-time Republican star who had a close relationship with the Roseville Republican.

Republican Party sources told The Bee the raid occurred on Friday as a former Doolittle staff member and lobbying colleague of Abramoff, Kevin A. Ring, abruptly resigned his job with a Washington law firm, raising the prospect that the FBI was focusing on Doolittle.

The article also has a run down of all the Doolittle scandals in case you're not up to date.

Other recent headlines at the Sacramento Bee:

Doolittle campaign still in debt

Doolittle's going down. At this point it's uncertain whether he'll actually make it to election day next year or whether he'll have to resign before that. Either way, Charlie Brown is gonna need all the resources he can get, so consider donating to Charlie's campaign and vote for him at the DFA's Grassroots All-Star contest.
