"To have, to hold, and to act as a pass-through"

Daily Muck: In Abramoff Scandal, Wives Play Key Role
To move money to Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA), ASG hired Doolittle's wife, Julie, to be an accountant. (Doolittle sits on two powerful committees.) Through his lobby firm, Abramoff hired Julie to raise money for a charity he founded. And Doolittle funneled off a portion of many large campaign contributions by paying Julie a 15 percent "commission" on each one she allegedly landed. Julie also got money from Abramoff.
And they're worried about gay marriage harming their so-called holy unions.
