Crazy Curt Rides the Wahhhhmbulance

So, pausing for a moment in his efforts to personally find the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Crazy Curt and his gang are denying that federal investigators are trying to sap his precious bodily fluids.

Weldon’s office reacted with outrage late Friday night, denying that an investigation is under way and claiming the report is an attempt to influence the Nov. 7 election.

"There is no investigation," said the congressman’s spokesman, John Tomaszewski. "There is no formal investigation and there is no inquiry. There’s nothing. This is nonsense, ludicrous."

Tomaszewski said neither Weldon nor anyone in his office has been contacted by the Justice Department.

The sources of the story said the FBI obtained evidence over the last few months "suggesting that the congressman may have broken the law" by assisting Karen Weldon in obtaining overseas contracts. One source, described only as a law enforcement official, said Weldon hadn’t yet been told of the inquiry.

Did McClatchy get punked? Is there no investigation? I guess we'll have to wait and see...
