FBI raids John Doolittle’s abode. Chief aide resigns.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bag of bat guano imho, from TPM:

The FBI has raided the Northern Virginia home of Rep. John Doolittle (R-Calif.), according to Congressional sources. No details are publicly available yet about the circumstances of the raid, but Doolittle and his wife, Julie, have been under federal investigation for their ties to the scandal surrounding imprisoned former lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Update: Remember that a former key aide to Doolittle, Kevin Ring, who’d worked with Abramoff, resigned suddenly from his job late last week. As I wrote before, that’s a clear sign that Ring may be preparing to plead guilty and implicate Doolittle.

Keep the indictments coming and the hearings and subpoena’s rolling too. If Carol Lam was still there, this would of happened a lot soon me thinks.
