..about Spivack calling for Hastert to resign and Castle to give back Boehner's tainted money.1) Spivack is dead right.
It is a culture of corruption in Washington and the Republicans are interested in protecting one thing and one thing only - their power. 2) Who gave Castle's statement?
Jackson qualifies Castle's statement with this fancy footwork. "In a statement issued by his office..."
Was it a written statement? Did Castle write the statement? Is he conscious? Has anyone seen him or heard his voice for over a week now? Read the whole thing.
Notice how when Carper is unavailable for a statement Patrick Jackson quotes Carper's spokeman Bill Ghent. Why not also quote Castle's spokesperson if the statement was from a spokeperson? Could it be that the Doug Williams, the NJ's politcal editor, decided that quoting Castle's spokesperson would have made Castle seem impaired?
Jackson's email and phone number are on the bottom of the story. I just called and asked him about this. So, I'll let you what I find out.
