DCCC Links NRCC Chief Sessions To Disgraced Financier

He’s heavily favored to win re-election in 2010, but National Republican Congressional Committee Pete Sessions (Texas) continues to be a frequent target of criticism by his partisan opposites at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The DCCC on Wednesday released a statement whacking Sessions, who represents the Dallas-area 32nd district, for links to Allen Stanford, the financier who’s been accused of fraud.

The DCCC is circulating a Dec. 27 Miami Herald story about Stanford’s ties to members of Congress — including Sessions, who sent Stanford a strongly supportive e-mail message right after the Securities and Exchange Commission in February entered a temporary restraining order against Stanford in federal court. The government alleges that Stanford engaged in a multi-billion Ponzi scheme.
