Press briefing by Presidential spokesliar, Snotty McClellan, January 17, 2006.
Gee, sounds like just a couple of times, like maybe religious ceremonies or something. Or not.
MR. McCLELLAN: I did check. There were a few staff-level meetings. As I indicated there were -- I think I previously indicated that he attended three Hanukkah receptions at the White House. It is actually only two Hanukkah receptions that he attended.
Former associates of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff had dozens of appointments with Bush administration staff members, according to Secret Service visitor logs the White House released yesterday to settle a lawsuit by the Democratic Party and an ethics watchdog group.[...]
Seems the Dems weren't willing to rely on ole Snotty to get back to the steno capitol crew and had to break out the lawyers to find out who has been in the people's Whitehouse, currently occupied by Repugnicons.
Republican activists Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed, political allies of President Bush and longtime Abramoff associates, totaled more than 100 visits to the Bush White House. Abramoff, a former GOP lobbyist, has pleaded guilty to fraud and is cooperating with prosecutors in an influence-peddling investigation. White House officials said they believe all their meetings that included Bush were group events, such as Christmas parties or policy briefings for GOP supporters.[...]
Ah, Grover and Ralph, lobbying for Jack and the mighty right-wing welfare programs. I guess when Snotty said "two" referring to meetings, he left out the modifier "hundred." It only took nine months to get these records. If this story gets any traction Iran better head for cover.
