Today In Katherine Harris: It's Only Dinner!
"...so you say there's a limo on the way, Representative Harris?"
Representative Katherine Harris has an expensive, romantic dinner with beloved contractor/hooker-provider Mitchell Wade. Her staffers had just rejected a $10 million appropriations request from Mr. Wade, because it was submitted late and made no sense. After dinner, though, Katherine demands that they submit it to a defense appropriations subcommittee. Because it would not do to submit such a request until it was as nakedly quid pro quo as possible. That's the way Katy rolls.
It must've been a pretty romantic dinner.
One staffer said it was "unusual, but not unheard of" for Harris to take such a keen interest in a specific appropriations request.
The other said it was "highly irregular" for a request to be submitted weeks late.
"Katherine was pretty adamant about it," the former staffer said.
You know, Katherine probably has more "former staffers" at this point than most ex-presidents.
This is the part where we remind you again that Mitch Wade gave his favorite members of congress anything they wanted. And we mean anything.
