Beltway Irony

It is little stories like these that have placed Eric Phieffer's "Beltway Buzz" blog at National Review Online on my morning reads.
Earlier this week, Democracy for America sent a letter to supporters blasting Tom DeLay for having his wife and daughter on his campaign re-election payroll.

Before it was Democracy for America, the organization was Dean for America, created by DNC Chair Howard Dean to support his now-failed presidential bid. What DFA's letter failed to mention is that Democracy for America is now run by – Dean’s younger brother, Jim. In the 2004 cycle, he was paid $22,177 By Dean For America and $6,009 by Democracy For America, according to the non-partisan Political Money Line website. Up to date dollar numbers for 2005 are not currently available.
