Just What Else Can Happen To Katherine Harris?

To the embarrassment that never ends
So glad you could attend....

TPM Muckraker Reports:
Did Harris Break Rule, Hide Subpoena from House Leaders?

It's unfortunate that after receiving a federal grand jury subpoena, Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL) declined to mention it to her Senate campaign staff.

But it appears she also declined to share it with the Speaker of the House -- and that's a violation of House rules.

As we've seen most recently in the case of Rep. Bob Ney's (R-OH) heavily-subpoenaed office (wham, bam, thank you and ma'am), any representative or staffer receiving a subpoena concerning any work-related issue must disclose it, and an announcement is subsequently published in the Congressional Record. It's called "House Rule VIII," and it's cited in just about every disclosure.
Honestly this is just getting pathetic and sad.
