Is that former Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS) is now lobbying his wife, Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) on behalf of Dubai Ports World.
John of Americablog.com says it best:
As if this deal to sell off control of US ports to the United Arab Emirates couldn’t become any sleazier, we now have former Republican Senator Bob Dole being hired as a lobbyist to influence – who? – HIS OWN WIFE. Yes, Bob Dole’s wife is a Republican Senator from North Carolina.
I’m sorry, but how much sleazier can you get than having a former member of Congress being paid by a foreign government to lobby his own wife? Not to mention, I’m not real sure of the propriety of our national security decisions being influenced by foreign money.
Jack Abramoff would be proud.
