It's easy to delight in the Hastert/Foley meltdown, and how it's hit a national nerve. Building on all the administration's abuses, failures, and lies, the cover up of this out-of-control congressman may just give America the inadvertent gift of a chance to finally change course.

Every American has a profound opportunity to stand with Democrats, independents and genuinely concerned Republicans to elect a Congress that will bring America together, lift all Americans higher, make all Americans proud, and restore unity and integrity to our democracy.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Alright, that's it. Are there any Republicans these days that aren't total sex perverts? We all know about FoleyGate, and just the other day BuzzFlash reported about the Wisconsin GOP nominee for Secretary of State whose lone campaign issue is her bountiful sexual history with members of the Green Bay Packers football team during the 1960s.

DNC Voting Rights Institute Chair Donna Brazile Calls on Election Assistance Commission to Release Study

Washington, DC- This afternoon the Chair of the Democratic National Committee's Voting Rights Institute (VRI), Donna Brazile, testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on issues of voter fraud and voter intimidation. During her testimony Brazile called on the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to release a report that proves there is little evidence of the polling-place fraud that is used to justify Voter ID around the country.

DNC: Ney Guilty Plea Highlights Ever-Growing GOP Culture of Corruption

Washington, DC - Disgraced Ohio Republican Congressman Bob Ney today finally pled guilty to felony charges of conspiracy and making false statements after taking tens of thousands of dollars worth of trips, sports tickets, campaign contributions, meals and casino chips from convicted Republican super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff. This is just the latest example of the ever-growing Republican culture of corruption. Ney's conviction follows the conviction of former GOP Congressman Duke Cunningham, the resignation of former Republican House leader Tom DeLay and the eruption of numerous scandals surrounding a number of Republicans in Washington. At the same time, Republicans in Congress have consistently blocked ethics reform packages proposed by Democrats.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

As we all know, there are lies, damn lies, and reports from the Bush Administration. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), soon to be chairman of the House Reform Committee, has identified the latest one: a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) fib about the cost of Medicare.

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: There's No Turning Back

The tidal wave of rage, disgust, and indignation of most Americans toward the fascist Bush regime will not be stopped by any stolen election. We will only grow stronger. The neocon chickenhawks cannot prevail against an insurgency in America any more than they can one in Iraq. When faced with a population determined to defend OUR freedom and OUR country, they will cut and run. They always do.
