Overwhelming Bipartisan Majority Believe White House Should Disclose Contacts With Abramoff

CREDIT:

Yesterday President Bush said that White House contacts with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, including photos of Bush with Abramoff, are “not relevant.” The American people disagree:

The [Washington Post-ABC News] survey found that three in four–76 percent–of all Americans said Bush should disclose contacts between aides and Abramoff while 18 percent disagreed.

Scott McClellan said that people who want the information are trying to “engage in partisan attacks.” That’s not true either:

Two in three Republicans joined with eight in 10 Democrats and political independents in favoring disclosure, according to the poll.

It’s day 22 of the White House stonewall. Time to come clean.
