The Best Democrat in New England?

Now this race gets more and more telling by the minute. It turns out that Joe Lieberman is more than just a little too cozy with the Republicans. Seems Lieberman owes a lot more than we thought to the President. As it turns out, Lieberman was receiving millions from the GOP. The White House itself was helping GOP doners funnel money into Lieberman's campain PRE-primary. MILLIONS. so the question is...what if he wins? how do you keep a democrat in leadership if they've been bought and paid for by the other side?

GOP secretly channeled millions to Lieberman

The White House funneled millions of dollars through major Republican Party contributors to Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s primary campaign in a failed effort to ensure the support of the former Democrat for the Bush administration.

A senior GOP source said the money was part of Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove's strategy to maintain a Republican majority in the Senate in November. The source said Mr. Rove, together with Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, directed leading pro-Bush contributors to donate millions of dollars to Mr. Lieberman's campaign for re-election in Connecticut in an attempt that he would be a "Republican-leaning" senator.
