Keeping up with: Rep. Jane Harman

The Rep. Jane Harman wiretap story just keeps crawling deeper and deeper into the labyrinth. The most recent revelations:

Gene Maddaus at the Daily Breeze reports that Harman has challenged CQ columnist Jeff Stein, who broke the story, to a road race. Her attempt to show she's taking things in stride seems misguided - shouldn't she be challenging ex-CIA Director Porter Goss?

Laura Rozen at Foreign Policy reports that Harman, desperate to smother any more bad news, has hired former Clinton adviser Lanny Davis as her media adviser. Rozen's piece also includes a summary of the political backstabbing behind the wiretap story - which reveals a disturbing level of political gamesmanship among people entrusted with America's safety.
