Who Says No One Loves Him?
NY Daily News Gives Sweeney an award!
MOHAMMED SAEED al-SAHAF EXCELLENCE IN DENIAL AWARD
And finally, the gilded statuette of former Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, handed out for Excellence in Denial, goes to upstate Republican Rep. John Sweeney and his lawyer Stewart Jones, who spent the last days of the campaign frantically denying reports that Sweeney's wife called 911 in an apparent domestic violence incident.
"So what? Who says he beat up his wife?" Jones asked reporters Friday evening, before being reminded, again, that a state police report says she said he "knocked [her] around the house." Sweeney had previously promised to release documents he said would prove his innocence. Then Jones said he'd advised Sweeney "not to release any information to the public or the press."
Wonder why. (link)
