Iowa True Blue: CIETC is Not a Partisan Scandal
Excerpted from this post at Iowa True Blue
Ramona Cunningham is scheduled to appear in court today on the CIETC indictments. That reminds me how back in November, many Republican candidates tried to make CIETC, which is undoubtedly a scandal, a scandal about Democrats. You can ask Governor Nussle, Speaker Rants, and Senate Majority Leader Lundby how well that worked, but it still bugs me when I hear people say the CIETC bad guys are Dems -- and not just Dems, but "Democratic insiders." I consider myself a good Democrat. Before I was chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, I served on the State Central Committee, and on the Polk County Central Committee and Third District Committee before that. I've spent many hours volunteering at county and state Democratic Party headquarters, and I've run campaigns that involved lots of Democratic volunteers.
