The hits just keep on coming for the GOP

According to an AP story just filed:

F.B.I. Raids Home of Pa. Congressman’s Daughter

MEDIA, Pa. (AP) -- The FBI raided the homes of Rep. Curt Weldon's daughter and a close friend Monday as it investigates whether the congressman improperly helped the pair win lobbying and consulting contracts.

Earlier Monday, Weldon called the investigation politically motivated and called the timing suspect. A Republican locked in a tight re-election bid, he denied wrongdoing and said he gave his daughter no special help.

''What I find ironic, if there is an investigation, is that no one would tell me until three weeks before the election,'' Weldon said at an appearance in Media. ''This incident was 2 1/2 years ago.''

So now The FBI is politically motivated in its investigations? Is that really the stance Rep. Weldon wants to take on behalf of the GOP? How's that going to play with the moderate Dems living in Pennsylvania?

The implosion continues.
