My mistake set off a firestorm. I heard that I was lying, that Democrats never got a penny of Abramoff-tainted money, that I was trying to say it was a bipartisan scandal, as some Republicans claim.
She quotes some of the more "printable" emails she received out of thousands, so many that the email server at the Post was shut down:
"Yes, the WAPO needs an enema, and Howell should be the first thing that gets medicinally removed."
"You Deborah Howell, stop lying about Democrats getting money from Abramoff. Democrats do not control anything in Washington, so why would he waste money bribing them. Think and do your research, and stop being an idiot."
"This rag must be something that I pulled off a barscreen at a sewage treatment plant. Howell is simply a paid liar. How this creature endures itself is something I don't understand. What a piece of flotsam."
Relax, the Democratic Party is in good hands.
