GAO Rules Karen Ryan's Reporting Illegal

Even before Friday, the use of Department of Education funds to purchase pro-Bush Administration editorials was certainly a little sleazy. To say nothing of Karen Ryan's infamous, government-produced "news" segments. There won't be any consequences for this beyond the black eye the administration already got, but both incidents were ruled illegal on Friday by the General Accounting Office. What I didn't know about this story is that the Department of Education wasn't just doing analysis of newspaper articles to see how they portrayed No Child Left Behind; they were interested in public perception of the Republican Party. That goes beyond the shameless incompetence and mismanagement typical of this administration and into the realm of partisan looting.

In other news, rumor has it that David Manning is being considered for Sandra Day O'Connor's seat on the Supreme Court. From Washington, this is Karen Ryan reporting.
