Unfortunately I believe that we are limited in what we can focus on. I think that if we proceed with the partisan sideshow of prosecuting Bush admin. officials, healthcare will get lost in the brouhaha.

Latest Abramoff Casualty: Congressman Doolittle

POSTED: 05:56 PM ET, 01/10/2008 by The Editors

Rep. John Doolittle (R-Calif.) said today he will retire at the end of his term, becoming the latest congressional casualty of the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal.

Doolittle has been under pressure from his party to step down ever since the FBI raided the congressman's Virginia home in April looking for information about work that his wife, Julie Doolittle, did for Abramoff.

"It was not my initial intent to retire, and I fully expected and planned to run again right up until very recently," Doolittle said after a speech to supporters. Doolittle, who has denied wrongdoing in the Abramoff matter, barely won reelection in 2006 in his GOP-heavy district.

The Justice Department's Abramoff probe has resulted in a dozen convictions, including former Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio). The investigation also led former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) to leave Congress.
