Mainstream Media Ignores Massive Campaign Finance Fraud by Hillary. While the mainstream media continues to focus on the Democratic presidential horse race between Sen. Hillary Clinton (N.Y.) and Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.), an ongoing court case charging massive campaign finance fraud on the part of Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaign has largely been ignored by the corporate-owned press in the United States. So far, Mrs. Clinton has been shielded from charges that her Senate campaign in 2000 knowingly falsified Federal Election Commission (FEC) financial statements to hide over $1 million in illegal donations. Instead, Justice Department lawyers have converged on lower-level staff members, dragging them into court to testify regarding the accusations of fraud.

Bet you don't know about this!!! Nancy Pelosi getting stiff competition from Shirley Golub in the '08 primary!!! Golub claims Pelosi has shown "political cowardice" in standing up to Bush:

There is something truly phenomenal going on in San Francisco. A political novice by the name of Shirley Golub has the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, running scared, afraid that if she agrees to debate the challenger she will not be able to defend her record of capitulation, afraid the voters of the 8th congressional district will no longer make excuses for political cowardice . . . just afraid. And that's exactly the way Shirley Golub called it last week, when she called Nancy Pelosi out for being a political coward, using those exact words. Listen to the radio ad they are all talking about for yourself. (h/t "z" for zendetta)
