THE MONEY'S JUST A BONUS:

McDermott returns contribution linked to Hussein's regime (The Associated Press, 4/17/2004)

Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington has returned a $5,000 contribution made to his legal defense fund by an Iraqi-American businessman who has acknowledged financial ties with Saddam Hussein's regime.

Does anyone really think Mr. McDermott betrayed his country for the money?

It's not betraying his country, but providing a constituent service to his district. That he can get a few buck in the process is just a bonus.

For the money? No, not for the money.

Legal defense fund? Is he really in trouble for some of his activies? If true, that's very good news--maybe there really is a God, even in Seattle. :-)
