Justice Dept. Reviewed Doolittle's Financial Records

Raw Story covers a Roll Call report published today announcing that Doolittle is one of nine Members of Congress and at least seven former staffers whose financial records were reviewed by the Justice Dept. last summer and fall:

In a stretch running from June to October, a pair of aides at Justice examined the financial disclosure forms of Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Mont.), Reps. Tom DeLay (R-Texas), John Doolittle (R-Calif.) and Bob Ney (R-Ohio), as well as ex-staffers for three of those lawmakers, according to House and Senate records.

While Justice officials declined to comment, many of the financial searches appear to be connected to the continuing two-year probe of Abramoff’s dealings on Capitol Hill and with the Bush administration.
