Hey Mitch, Return The Money

Even after the news that the FBI raided the home of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, Mitch McConnell refused to return the $2,500 he received from Steven's Northern Lights PAC last cycle.

Conservatives have been calling on McConnell to help lead the charge in cleaning up the corruption that brought our party down in 2006, but the Louisville liberal McConnell simply will not listen. Sen. Trent Lott blasted McConnell again over the issue, saying:
“After the exhibition I saw on immigration, I don’t suspect there’s going to be a lot of strength and dynamic leadership here [to oppose the lobbying reform legislation], but we’ll see,” he said, referring to GOP criticisms of McConnell’s lack of visibility during the final days of the unsuccessful immigration debate in June.
