About Lieberman's petty cash

Don't think we've forgotten about you Joe.

It's just a matter of time until everything behind the 387,000 in petty cash you dished out on the streets in the days leading up to the primary comes to light.

From Tim Targaris at MyDD
Following up on Matt's post, I called the FEC to inquire about their progress into the FEC investigation surrounding the $387,000 Joe Lieberman spread around the streets of Connecticut days before the primary. Essentially, the investigation continues and no one will be able to learn about its progress until it is completed.

Unless ... Joe Lieberman gives permission to add transparency to the elongated process.

Until then, only two people receive updates about the progress of the investigation: Tom Swan (who filed the complaint) and Joe Lieberman. Unless both parties give permission to open updates to the public, speaking about it is illegal. When it concludes, it will be assigned an FEC number and become searchable on fec.gov.
We have all the time in the world...
