Watch that First Step

Congress is all adither about the fact - which they just seem to have discovered - that Indian Tribes, unlike individuals, are not subject to aggregate limits on their political contributions. Apparently concerned that we haven't done enough to screw the Indians lately, there's a move afoot to limit this, "loophole."

Always one to find the limelight, John McCain held a hearing today on Indian Tribe campaign giving, and suggested taht we need more disclosure. According to Congressional Quarterly, Senator McCain says, "Transparency is always the first step when there's a problem."

And that's the fear.
