The Sleuth: June 10, 2007 - June 16, 2007

Like a Prayer: 14 Women (and Joe Biden)

Does it make any sense at all that two creators of risqué music videos for pop culture icons Madonna and Janet Jackson would wind up making a documentary about women senators? The "14" in a 2003 photo: Left to right in the front row are Olympia J. Snowe, Blanche L. Lincoln, Barbara Boxer, Susan M. Collins, Dianne Feinstein, Maria Cantwell. In the back row left...

Frank Wolf's Shocking Matinee

The representatives of companies doing business in East Asia must have had no idea they were in for such a buzz kill when they scheduled a meeting with Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) this week. While the members of the Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce wanted to discuss business issues, Wolf preferred talking about human rights abuses.

C-SPAN Squelches Dodd's D-SPAN

The public affairs network that political and government junkies couldn't live without -- C-SPAN -- has put a stop to a Democratic presidential candidate's rip-off of the C-SPAN logo for a new video Web TV feature. In the lower right-hand corner of Sen. Chris Dodd's (Conn.) campaign Web site, you'll find a plug for DTV "coming soon...LIVE VIDEO and highlights from the campaign trail." DTV...

The African American $ Primary

A Tuesday night fundraiser for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) at the home of BET founder Bob Johnson was a Who's Who of prominent (and wealthy) African Americans, some of whom seem to be wavering between Clinton and her top rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.). Billed as a "family reunion," the event drew dozens of former Clinton administration officials, political...

Blood in the Capitol After Bush's Meeting with GOP Senators

From the way Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) looked afterward, you'd have thought that President Bush's very rare face-to-face meeting on Capitol Hill today with Senate Republicans had erupted into a bloody brawl. After Bush's closed-door 11th-hour appeal to rescue his immigration overhaul policy (and, thus, his domestic legacy), the Sleuth saw Bennett walking down the hall on the first floor of the Capitol looking dazed...
