Reports from Cuba’s Venezuela: Habemus Landrieu-gate

By Juan Cristobal Nagel in Caracas Chronicles:

Habemus Landrieu-gate

Landrieu

OK, so it took a few days, but finally a major political news outlet in the US is following the scandal involving Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu and her close, intimate relationship with Citgo’s money.

The website Politico – one which *everyone* in Washington reads – has the story in its lead page. In fact, it goes beyond that. Reporter Byron Tau confirmed than Landrieu’s block of the bill was done at Citgo’s behest. There’s even an e-mail trail! (Thank you FOIA)

I don’t know what will come of this. I do know that I’m mad as hell about it.

    Landrieu is a disgrace, but then again, so are way too many people in Congress. She should be forced to resign over this, but that would only happen if she were a Republican who did the same thing on behalf of a right-wing regime. And btw, if a US senator will cave in to chavista pressure, why would poor little Aruba even consider playing hardball with Caracas? Again, total disgrace, and I'm not just talking about Landrieu.
