Third Second Doolittle aide talking to feds.

Pete Evich, the former legislative director for scandal-plagued Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA), “said Wednesday he was recently contacted by federal investigators in their probe of Doolittle’s ties to jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff.” Evich is the second Doolittle aide to acknowledge their contacts with the feds, suggesting “prosecutors are widening their investigation in the wake of an FBI raid on Doolittle’s home in April that led him to give up his seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.”
