Is There Another Party Besides the Republicans?

One has to wonder after reading two Associated Press articles.

The first, not attributed is about the Detroit Mayoral vote recount. Two Democrats are involved in the contested result. Neither candidate's party affiliation is named.

The second , by AP's Susan Gamboa, is about Prosecutor Ronnie Earle issuing "subpoenas for bank records and other information of a defense contractor involved in the bribery case of a California congressman" in the case of Tom Delay.

Setting aside the fact that Randy Cunningham is a FORMER congressman (properly identified later), no mention is made of Mr. Earle's Democrat affiliation. But Mr. Delay's "Texans for a Republican Majority" gets a mention. Additionally, one of the later paragraphs states that "Earle alleges that DeLay and two coconspirators funneled $190,000 in corporate contributions through the Texas political committee and an arm of the National Republican Committee to seven GOP state legislative candidates."

Mr. Earle's deeply partisan past, including his failed attempt to prosecute freshly-elected Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson in the early 1990s, remain totally ignored by the partisan press.
