Hey, Reed and Norquist-- you got a little Abramoff on you.

Two fundamentalist power-brokers, Ralph Reed and Grover Norquist, have been "served," as they say. From Roll Call:

Americans for Tax Reform, for which Norquist serves as president, is refusing to disclose its donor list to the Senate committee, said two officials with the group. Reed�s firm, Century Strategies, is complying with the subpoena. Senate investigators are seeking four years' worth of records detailing Century Strategies' business dealings with Abramoff and GOP political consultant Michael Scanlon and entities under their control, said several sources familiar with the issue.


The relationship between Abramoff, Reed and Norquist goes back to the early 1980s when all three worked together for the College Republicans.

Let that be a warning to you, young Christian soldiers. To paraphrase Mark Twain, "A lie can travel halfway 'round the world before the truth even gets its pants on, but the truth always catches up."
