Top US Govt Official Struck with Amnesia
There is something in the drinking water in DC that seems to cause severe memory loss:
In this clip, Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) grills her on a PowerPoint presentation
(pdf) given by Karl Rove's deputy Scott Jennings to GSA personnel in
January. The slides (13 pages) detailed which seats were "House
Targets" and which "Senate Targets", which states were "Republican
Offense," and which "Republican Defense." After the presentation, Doan
reportedly asked other employees how the agency could help "our
candidates." The GSA, remember, is the government's procurement agency,
in charge of almost $60 billion each year. All of this seems like a
clear violation of the Hatch Act, which prohibits using federal
resources to aid political parties.
Loan doesn't have a good answer for Braley's questions, stuttering
out "I don't recall"s and something about how the meeting was a "brown
bag lunch" for the purpose of “team building.” You should "ask Mr.
Jennings," she says.
