Comforting the afflicted

(for context - see this Sacramento Bee editorial and TPM Muckraker's Doolittle posts)

Big Doolittle news day today for The Union - the paper paper (but nothing about it online *...) devotes a whopping fifteenth of the front page (below the fold) to
Doolittle's campaign raises almost $800,000

[front page]


The (illegible, sorry) sub-sub-hed at the bottom says

Doolittle's wife sets up fund-raising company
(five years old*, present tense and today's news)

and points inside, to this republished Washington Post article titled
Donations for a Congressman, Profits for His Wife

though in The Union it's been retitled:
[page 10]
Doolittle's wife sets up 'legal and ethical' fundraising firm
("legal and ethical" according to his spokesman, the only person quoted in the article)

That's a nice $80,000 slice for the Doolittle family. I'm glad we could help.

Scuse my blunder, it's a nice $120,000 slice.
