Rep. Doolitle is in the investigator's sights now.

Damn! These investigations are slow! If this were a TV movie, it would only have taken two hours to get this far, and they even throw in commercials!

California Rep. John Doolittle (CA - R) has been talked about as a target of investigations for corruption since 2005, and his close association with Abramoff has made it clear that there is more than just smoke there. But now everything seems to be heating up. Kevin Ring has just resigned suddenly with no notice from his lucrative job as a lobbyist. This is usually the pattern just before a person makes a deal with the investigators for a lighter sentence if he will give up someone higher on the food chain. In Ring's case it is going to be his former employer, Rep. Doolittle.

TPM Muckraker has the story.

All I can say is, it's about time. Now when does Rep. Jerry Lewis (CA - R) get his turn in the barrel?
