Defending the family

According to, "Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, gave a nearly $14,000 pay raise to a female staffer in 2008, at the time he was becoming romantically involved with her, and later that year took her on a taxpayer-funded trip to Southeast Asia and the Middle East, though foreign policy was not her specialty (NOTE the trip also cost $14,000 per person). "

If the news media can expose a southern state Republican governor who goes on a out of the country trip to South America, why can't it report and be equally critical of a Washington Insiders' House of Prostitution?

The news media travels to Florida and the entire golf circuit reporting private funds for prostitution with Tiger Woods, but ignores the use of taxpayer funds by Senator Max Baucus to dump his former wife and pay for a new girlfriend by
in full view of 25,000 reporters in Washington, D.C.

The story of this started with the nomination of his then-girlfriend for U.S. Attorney and just grows.

It's just like Barney Frank with illegal drugs being used in his presence-- most liberal reporters don't see the news in a powerful liberal Senator using taxpayer dollars to fund his "private" lifestyle.

Fox News reports that "Melodee Hanes, Baucus' former state director and now his live-in girlfriend, reportedly met at least twice with the Montana Democrat's divorce attorney to talk about the Baucuses' divorce eight months before the senator and his wife separated." So Baucus may have had a taxpayer subsidized divorce as Hanes "plotted"

Quoting Fox "Melodee Hanes, the woman who is now his live-in girlfriend -- was plotting out the senator's life without a wife."

This is the same Melodee Hanes nominated for U.S. attorney by Max Baucus.

But where is the deep investigative reports around the clock until he resigns or is investigated and punished?
