"Weldon’s “FBI informant” is a campaign staffer."

Curt Weldon (R-PA) has been suggesting to reporters that federal agents investigating Weldon have been working in cahoots with his Democratic campaign opponent Joe Sestak. Weldon “failed to mention” that the “ex-FBI agent” is one of his own staffers, who has been on his campaign’s payroll since May.
