Elizabeth Dole Plays Dumb

I think perhaps I was the only one who caught this. But when the Dubai Ports deal first came to national attention in mid February, Sen. Elizabeth Dole played the "shocked" role, along with the other members of Congress. But all along, her husband, former Senate giant Bob Dole, was working for the Dubai company as a high powered and highly paid lobbyist, helping to ensure that the deal would be approved.

So this is something that Elizabeth Dole had to have known all along. But when she was seen in the media, she appeared surprised and concerned. Just another example of dishonesty from these politicians.

Dole's role is discussed in this article.
