Emails and IMs
A TPM reader makes an obvious point:
Once ABC got hold of the e-mails, it took them one day to flush out the IMs. That's what an actual investigation looks like. The Republican leadership simply didn't want to know how bad the Foley situation was. That's just as morally negligent as if they had started digging and found the IMs.
The parallels between the RNC and the Vatican just got a lot stronger.
