This just stinks

For Democrats, a Scandal of Their Own - New York Times...this article neatly explains the effect that the FBI raid on a Democratic congressman's office has had...despite all the justified brouhaha over whether the executive branch is overstepping the separation of powers, a high profile attack on the ethics and conduct of a Democrat has become the prominent news of the day.
"There is no doubt that the charges, the conduct of any Democrat, is going to be raised by those who question our attacks on a culture of corruption as a way to divert attention from that," said Representative Lloyd Doggett, Democrat of Texas and a vocal critic of Representative Tom DeLay, the former majority leader.
Now I'm certainly not suggesting any political motivation at play here, but it sure as heck doesn't smell right, does it?
